Things to consider

Special Circumstances:

Normal working hours to be worked, however flexibility is required to meet set deadlines. The factory can operate 2-3 shifts and weekends so as a consequence there will sometimes be a need for short term flexibility of working patterns.

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).For more information please visit: https://www.gov.uk/national-minimum-wage-rates
