TAQA has a vacancy for a Learning and Development Administrator to join the team on a contract basis for a duration of 12 months. 

Why work for TAQA?

TAQA is committed to helping its employees and contractors work more flexibly to suit both their own and the Company's needs.

Compressed Working Week (CWW)

TAQA offers onshore employees and contractors a Compressed Working Week (CWW) in order to help achieve a healthy work-life balance.  The CWW is an arrangement where employees and contractors work a standard two-week work period (10 days) over a compressed period of 9 working days i.e. employees contracted to work 37.5 hours per week will work 75 hours over 9 days (instead of 10 days). The 10th day in the second week of the CWW period is known as 'Flex Friday', a non-working day.

Agile Working

All employees and contractors at TAQA have the opportunity to participate in Agile Working.  Agile Working means individuals can find an optimum balance between home/office working and flexibility on when and where contracted hours are worked. The aim is to deliver business results, whilst supporting a work/life balance and promoting a positive culture that supports engagement and retention.   Individuals can establish their own working pattern with their line manager to accommodate business requirements and personal preferences within an agreed framework.

Flexible Working

TAQA is open to receiving applications from candidates that work variable hours.  If this is important to you, we encourage you to talk to us to see if we can make it work for both you and the business.
