We know that no two people are the same, so we don’t expect our employees to fit to one prescribed way of working. Our workforce is made up of a mixture of core, contracted staff and flexible workers, allowing us to benefit from experience and reliability and also react to changing customer demand with employees who are invaluable during our busiest periods.
All of our employees sign a staff charter of agreed working practices when they join us. This lays out in clear detail what is expected of them, whatever their role, and, just as importantly, it explains what they can expect from us in return.
