    Never trust an agency though. If after 8 months someone at client or agency wants to change from pwd with no hours listed to hours listed then I;m a bit wary.

    Ah yes but most of the stuff in NLUKS head is a world where hes the head honcho consultant who knows it all and I'm 1st line desktop support helpdesk.

    Not sure what he does but Im afraid I've never done 1st line support ever I'm afraid. At least if I'm going to get abuse then have some truth in it.

    In the channel isles it’s 9/9.15 - 4.45/5. God forbid anyone is there after 5.

    I tend so sit in between the two for flexibility. I worked until 10 last night and started at 6am this morning finishing at 4 as I have a big presentation on Thursday. Everyone else will only work in core hours. Swings and roundabouts
    +1.

    Generally I start around 8 and finish by 4:30.

    Sometimes more, sometimes less, it depends on what I have to do.

    If you really feel the need to abuse some one else to make yourself feel good, then crack on. Doing my bit for the nluk community.
    The irony is killing me. It's in response to the same old boring whinge from you which always get's moved to General (has this not dawned on you yet?) and get's the same level of piss take from everyone else, not me. Chirst, even JamesBrown has had a pop and he's one of the most laid back posters on the forum!

    Posting dumb brain farts over and over is going to illicit the same responses over and over.

    Didn't actually mention 1st line this time...

    Never trust an agency though. If after 8 months someone at client or agency wants to change from pws with no hours listed to hours listed then I;m a bit wary.
    But WGAS? It's a form filling exercise for purchasing. It's got absolutely squat to do with what and how you do. And who the hell uses the lower figure. You say 7.5 to 8. They are just going to use the rounded number. It's just easier. You are never going to round it down when dealing with finance either, just asking for trouble. Why the hell are you getting so worked up about absolutely nothing.

    IMO you are totally wrong in this case. Agent has just put 8 in because you mentioned it and it's easier to type in to their forms. Period.

    And also the hours you work has no relation to accounting systems. They still have to count numbers for resource planning and budgets. Do you think someone is going to put the time you work in every day? Now that would wind you up. It's a professional working day because you can flex the time regardless what is on the system. The fact you can't even understand these basics questions the whole word professional in any of your posts.

    Not even when he was engaged as a 1st line support technician.

    I always thought it was Present working directory. My contract says nothing about working hours. But I generally do 9-5.30 or something like that.
