Office Based Working Returns!
Like many businesses across Scotland we have been following the Scottish Government’s guidelines on office closures as a way of helping control the spread of the Virus and keeping our staff and visitors safe.
Since the easing of almost all restrictions was announced in August we have been preparing for a return to Office Based Working for our staff in a way that minimises risk but also allows our staff to have a presence in the local area.
From Monday 6 September 2021 we increased the number of staff working from the office. Staff will be working a mix of home and office based working and we plan to trial this for a six month period.
However we are only able to offer an “in-person” pre-arranged appointment service from this date. We would still ask that you continue to contact staff by telephone, email or by your smart phone in the first instance as our appointments are limited, and should only be arranged if a face to face appointment is essential.
The office will remain closed to passing visitors so please only attend if you have an appointment. We also ask that anyone with an appointment wears a face covering and registers their contact details with us.
Should you be experiencing corona virus symptoms including a new or continuous cough, or high temperature or if you are awaiting results of a PCR test having been identified as a close contact of someone with the virus, then please do not visit the office.
We would welcome your feedback on this and your views on how we can further improve our services to you during these difficult times.
