We recognise that people often want to work flexibly, either in the short or long term and our ‘Staff Bank’ offers people the opportunity to work shifts around their personal commitments. These shifts include working on a rota including daytime, evenings, sleep-ins, weekends and Bank Holidays.

Our ‘Staff Bank’ supplements our workforce and helps with the peaks and troughs of providing cover for planned and unplanned shortfalls in staffing, covering vacancies and staff absences, as well as bringing in specific skills for short periods of time.

The ‘Staff Bank’ offers fantastic opportunities and experience to those that wish to develop their skills and knowledge and you will also be able to apply for any internal vacancies within the company.
