Hours Worked




A standard measure of a full working week is about 48 hours. That is what the EU uses in it’s ‘Working Time Directive’ to ensure employees are not being overstretched. In Great Barr, 89.7% of full- or part-time workers work those hours or fewer. That means 10.3% work more than that, a total of 1,400 people. Many of our clients fit into this category, and if you are one of them we are ready to work around your busy schedule.

Very rude and have a habit of not replying. Have seen personal info of clients too. Very unprofessional and ill-mannered. How they received an award is beyond me.
Very bad customer service.
dismayed to see private client details just left out on tables at the front of the office.
