Questions asked by suppliers

1. I can see that this says on-site Monday to Friday but I am wondering if there would be any flexibility on this? Specifically is there potential for any remote working, even if just one day a week?
We would have a preference for someone who could be on site as much as possible as the role is imbedded in a fast moving agile delivery team. An element of remote working is acceptable as long as evidence of previous successful delivery via remote working is provided in the submission and as long as suitable conditions are in place allowing constant communication with the team (high speed broadband, high spec kit, ability to connect to skype meetings etc.) and as long as there is flexibility to attend face to face meetings when required with suitable notice.
