All new employees accrue holiday from their first day of employment.  You will receive 26 days holiday, plus public bank holidays, rising to a maximum of 30 days as your service increases.  Our holiday year runs from 1st January to 31st December.  10 days of your holiday entitlement will be taken during our annual summer shutdown period and a further 7 days will be taken for the Christmas shutdown.  The remaining holiday days can be booked off with the agreement of your line manager.

Some key departments, such as engineering and maintenance, may work some or all of the shutdown period.
