Key areas will be:

The company operates a flexitime system whereby employees can start their shifts between 8.00 am and 10.00 am and finish their shifts between 4.00pm and 6.00pm respectively, Monday to Friday. Due to working with companies across multiple time zones; on occasion you may be asked to work additional / alternate hours.

Training and Induction
