You will be contracted to work 90 hours per 4 week period, on a flexible basis. This means that your days and hours of work could vary each week but you will always receive your contracted hours per period.

Your working hours will include some weekends, public/bank holidays and during Christmas and/or New Year on a rota basis with a premium rate of pay for hours worked on a Sunday.
