Due to Work Wales' reputation within Wales as a conscientious, reliable and forward thinking agency, we were delighted to be asked by BBC Wales News to comment on the recent issues surrounding zero hour contracts. As a member of the REC (Recruitment and Employment Federation), Work Wales takes it's responsibilities seriously and is committed to providing not only the best service to both clients and candidates but also adhering to regulations and best practices.
For us at Work Wales, zero hours contracts allow us to provide the flexibility clients demand. With the economy as it is, businesses require flexibility in order for them to be the most efficient. cost effective and competitive.
Similarly for candidates, zero hours contracts allow for flexible working; meaning candidates are able to have second jobs, can work around child care or can work around other commitments etc.
