As a contractor would you expect your line manager to provide Pastoral care?

Would it make a difference if your line manager was also a contractor or not?

Fair enough.

So, if for example, you collapsed at work, you would expect me as your line manager to just step over your collapsed, in the way body, or contact your nearest and dearest to let them know? maybe contact the emergency servicers too?

To me it makes no difference whether my "line-manager" is a contractor or not.

What sort of "pastoral" care are you looking for other than someone to sign your timesheets, notify of your inability to attend the site and where the coffee-machine, bogs are etc.?

Ok, now you're talking.

Ask your line manager what they're expecting you to cover, that way you don't step on anyone's toes.

I'd like to think I am competent enough to look after my own Fruit Pastilles

Pastoral care? Is he a priest or something?!

Seriously, I'm confused by the question. How does religion relate to work? :confused:

You interpret some vague text to back up whatever misguided view point you are trying to get others to believe in, oh no sorry that's ITIL

I'm guessing it means personal mentoring, in a secular sense, and in that case for a contractor the answer is an emphatic no!
