However full duties will be paid sign on to sign off (inclusive of meal reliefs) with a minimum shift of 5 hrs 30.

All licence medicals and ongoing CPC training will be included in this role as well as company uniform. Given the nature of the work, you will not be eligble for any staff travel concessions.
