Goodbye zero hours…….Hello guaranteed contracts
Melody Care are setting themselves apart from other Care companies by moving away from zero hours to new guaranteed hours contracts. As an organisation that highly values the work and contributions from staff, they want to offer carers and their families more financial security and stability. This will be one of a number of measures that Melody Care are considering to ensure that Carers are at the heart of what we do.
Benefits of guaranteed contracts include:
● Fixed income - With guaranteed set hours, staff will receive a stable cash flow which
will help with financial security and planning
● Time management - knowing how many hours you will be working each week makes it
much easier to manage your weekly schedule. This is especially the case if you have
other responsibilities such as collecting children from school
● Company commitment - staff will benefit from company benefits such as pension,
holiday and sick pay & redundancy rights.
In addition to these benefits, staff can still receive enhanced weekend rates, flexibility and part time work.
