The Summer Job Helpline offers advice again on May 2024. However, you can find further advice and guidance in the Summer job checklist and the Frequently asked questions below. When problems arise you may also talk to more senior colleagues and workmates, your local shop steward or employee representative, or the trade union for the industry concerned.
