You may be asked to work at any of our other sites as required by the
needs of the business and you will be given notice of no less than 5
working days. You will not be required to work outside the United
Kingdom. Due to the nature of the business, you may need to travel
from time to time to any of our sites.
Hours of Work
Your normal hours of work are 45 per week, as per the weekly rota,
working a maximum 5 days from 7. The business is opened 24 hours, so
this will include evenings, nights and weekend working. If you work
six hours or more in any one shift you will be entitled to a 30-minute
unpaid break. You may be required to work additional hours when
authorised and as necessitated by the needs of the business.
Your salary is currently: £
per annum payable monthly in arrears by BACs as detailed on your pay
statement. In your first year of employment your salary will be
proportionate to the amount of time left in the year. This salary is
pro-rated from your contract hours. Any additional hours worked will
be paid at your normal hourly rate.
No collective agreements directly affect your terms and conditions of
ANNUAL LEAVE AND PUBLIC/BANK HOLIDAYS
Your holiday year begins on 1st January and ends on 31st December each
year, during which you will receive a paid holiday entitlement of 5.6
working weeks inclusive of any public/bank holidays which you may
choose to request. In your first holiday year your entitlement will be
proportionate to the amount of time left in the holiday year.
However, because of the nature of our business you may be required to
work on any of the public/bank holidays and it is a condition of
employment that you work on these days when required to do so.
Where Christmas Day or New Year's Day is worked, payment will be made
at double time.
Conditions relating to the taking of holidays are shown in the
Employee Handbook to which you should refer.
In the event of termination of employment holiday entitlement will be
calculated as 1/12th of the annual entitlement for each completed
month of service during that holiday year and any holidays accrued but
not taken will be paid for. However, in the event of you having taken
any holidays in the current holiday year, which have not been accrued
pro-rata, then the appropriate payments will be deducted from your
