    Term time workers and part time contracts

    Ric and I met Will from Special Agent last night for a bit of a catch up as he was in the area. One idea that we had been discussing is asking wether those of you who work term time only would be intersted in doing a bit of agency work in other schools to suite i.e. durign the summer holidays you may fancy doing a couple of weeks work to keep the bank happy, or during half term possibly doing one or two days work. What we also need to know is if there is a demand from schools to hire this help in the first place, especially during those moments when you have 200 new PC's and monitors to unbox and put on desks etc.
    Anyway, please fill out the poll and let me know what you think.

    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    I'd be happy to be listed, although being in Cornwall may well limit the possibility of being called up!
    [Edit] I'm actually full time, but have been known to undertake additional work during holiday on a sepeare self-employed basis [/Edit]

    I could answer yes to more than one of the above:

    I work term-time only and do not like to work during the holidays (holiday working happens rarely)
    I would bring in short term staff to help out during holidays (if needed and the boss agreed)

    I wouldn't mind doing the odd day or two during the hols if ppl/schools need help. I live in Lancs so well located to go pretty much anywhere in the northwest really

    Hmmm... not sure what to pick as...

    I'm now Full-time, However I still wouldn't object to working during my booked holiday IF it was somewhere nice (Cornwall, Devon, Lakes.... etc) even if it was to the point of them just paying for somewhere to stay + meals.

    Also as below, but I can drive so thats not an issue ^_^. Anyone near leicester that needs an emergency extra hand let me know
