Reality Check

Working hours: Your standard hours will be 40 hours per week It is envisaged that most these 40 hours per week will be worked based on 8 hours per day, usually worked from 7.30 am to 4.30 pm, with an hour for lunch and predominantly between Monday and Friday. However, you will be required at times to work in a shift-pattern, as the seasonal workload dictates. That will include being required to work 8-hour shifts which may be any time between 7 am and 7 pm on any day of the week including Saturdays and Sundays as well as Monday to Friday. This is intended to be a flexible working arrangement and your hours will be notified to you by your Departmental Manager, as far in advance as practicably possible. Must be able to travel to site.
