Rosters & shifts

There are four rosters per year – Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring, which align closely to uni semesters and breaks. You need to work the same shift each week throughout a roster. You can change your shift for each new roster as your uni timetable changes.

During the training period (your first 12 days), you need to work one full day per week. After your first 12 days, we prefer you to continue working full days, but if that is not possible, then a split shift - 2 half days - is acceptable, subject to shift availability. Shifts are Monday to Friday 9.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-4.30pm (except closed Wednesday morning).
