When working in the UK you're provided with shared accommodation units that are clean, well-heating and with plenty of hot running water. Living on site is great fun and you’ll be guaranteed to make friends for life. We deduct a small cost per week from your gross salary for this accommodation, but this also includes all heat, light and electricity, plus bed linen.
Working in the UK Adventure product is hard work, so you’ll need to keep a good, well balanced diet to sustain your energy levels. Due to the nature of the staff accommodation, you may not have access to cooking facilities, so we provide all staff with the opportunity to have 3 meals a day in the on-site restaurant - at a greatly reduced cost, which will be set out in your Contract of Employment
Days and hours worked
UK contracts are based on a 6 day, 39 hour working week. However, due to the nature and seasonality of the work, you're expected to have a flexible approach that allows hours to be averaged over the period of your contract.
UK staff accrue paid holidays at the rate of 2 days for every completed months service. All accrued holiday days must be taken before the end of contract and you may be required to take them at times laid down by the company. For most staff this means that you are only required to work 5 1/2 days per week as the other 1/2 day is accrued holiday.
An appropriate uniform package is provided, at a reduced cost and is detailed in your Contract of Employment
The company's Insurance does not cover personal property while working in the UK, so employees must ensure that any personal property is covered by your own Insurance Policy.
