Question

In MQ 2015/3091 I asked whether you will be accepting adverts that contain zero-hour contracts in the Team London jobs listing and you referred me to MQ2015/3088. As you can see, the response to MQ 2015/3088 does not contain any reference to zero-hour contracts. Can you please tell me whether you will be accepting adverts that contain zero-hour contracts in the Team London jobs listing Service?

The jobs listing service will not actively promote zero-hour contracts.

The roles on the site will be a mixture of permanent, short term and temporary contracts.  Flexibility in contracting does suit a minority of people to coincide with their life styles. For example, students are a main user group for the site and the relative freedom temporary contracts offer them, support to balance work with their studies.
