How long do you need me for?
We are looking for a variety of roles with varying durations from short term assignments, to casuals to even permanent positions.  The duration of any position will be agreed between you and the employing organisation prior to the start of a job. The period of time you will be required is dependent upon the extent of support the Council requires as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak or whether they have any permanent longer-term assignments available.

What will be my employment status?
Each organisation will make it clear whether the offer of employment is on a permanent, casual or fixed term basis.

Who will pay me and how?
You will be paid directly by the organisation who has employed you.

Will I have to be interviewed?
Each organisation will have their own policy and procedure around how they select new employees and they will explain this to you before any selection process is started.  The likelihood is that organisation will want to speak to you and may choose to do so via face time, skype or other social media applications.

Will pre-employment and reference checks be carried out?
If you are offered a position, each organisation will conduct their own pre-employment checks and references in accordance with the requirements of the job. This will involve some or all of the following checks:
•    Right to Work in UK
•    Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checks including criminal record checks
•    Qualifications and Professional Registrations if required
•    References
