We do not expect staff to work more than their normal contracted hours but during this challenging period we are asking staff to be more flexible. This could mean that the times you work are different to your normal working arrangements.

We expect to be able to match available work against the skills and grade of staff who are available. Exceptionally, if you are asked to work at a higher grade, you will be paid the difference.

You will be expected to return to the duties of your original role.
