Contractor Terms & Conditions
We expect you to arrive before your shift begins. Being late is unacceptable. If you are late we reserve the right to send you home immediately without pay. We may also remove you from any future shifts.
Signing in and signing out.
It is imperative that you sign in and sign out of all shifts. Please do this with your manager if onsite, or remotely via your phone if instructed.
Cancellation by You
Once booked onto a shift, we expect you to attend. If you know you’re not going to make it, please give us as much notice as possible to find a replacement. If you cancel a shift with less than 24 hours notice we expect proof that you can’t attend (e.g. Doctors note). Any no-shows or late cancellation without proof will result in yourself being removed from our staffing database and any future shifts cancelled.
Cancellation by Us
We will always try our utmost to prevent this, but shifts sometimes get cancelled or changed last minute. If Quirky Group cancel or change a shift within 24 hours we will pay you for a minimum of 4 hours, unless the shift was below 4 hours and then you will be paid for the full shift.
Licensing and Challenge 25
Customers attempting to buy age-restricted products are asked to prove their age if in the retailer's opinion they look under 25 yet are over 18 years old. It gives the server full discretion to evaluate, followed by proof. No matter what additional precautions an event organiser may say they have put in place before people arrive at the bar, YOU the server have the ultimate responsibility and would receive the fine. Defend yourself against receiving a minimum fixed penalty fine of £90 by requesting to see ID from anyone you think looks under 25.
Rest breaks will be taken on a rotation basis administered by your supervisor. Prayer breaks must be incorporated within agreed rest breaks as directed by supervisors.
Health and Safety
Safety is always our top priority. Before any job begins you will be briefed on job and site-specific health and safety. Make sure you feel fully briefed on all matters of health and safety. Please ask if you have any doubts. Always take sensible precautions to ensure you, your colleagues and our customers are safe at all times.
For all customer-facing jobs, we expect staff to have a high level of personal hygiene and clean clothes.
You should only smoke in designated smoking areas, and only on a break. If you’re wearing a uniform please cover it up or take it off. Please ensure you don’t smell of smoke when coming back on shift.
Drugs and alcohol
You must never be under the influence of drugs or alcohol whilst working for Quirky Group. Exceptions may be made to have a sensible alcoholic drink at the end of a shift at the discretion of your manager.
When initially hiring a vehicle it is the driver's responsibility to check that there is no unrecorded damage and the fuel is at the stated level. These checks are essential to ensure you’re not charged for damage that wasn’t incurred by yourself.
At the termination of a rental, ensure the vehicle is left in a tidy condition. The driver will be held responsible for vehicles unreturned in an unsatisfactory condition.
If you are responsible for damaging a vehicle whilst under your control the driver will be responsible for the excess or repair bill. In exceptional circumstances, Quirky Group may contribute towards these costs.
All staff are expected to follow the laws of the land. Quirky Group accepts no liability for any fines, charges or damage incurred following offenses involving a vehicle you are in charge of, and the driver is responsible for such offenses. These include but are not limited to speeding, careless driving, parking fines, drink driving, entering areas with height/width/weight restrictions. In exceptional circumstances, Quirky Group may contribute towards a fine.
If entrusted with a set of keys, it is your responsibility to keep them safe at all times. You will be liable for the costs of replacing keys if lost.

Receipts must be obtained for all purchases and VAT receipts must be requested and obtained wherever possible. An electronic copy of all receipts must be submitted with your invoice.
All expense claims must be approved by your Quirky Group manager and should be submitted with your invoice. Any expense claims submitted after this may not be reimbursed.
