    Safe yes. Secure, that depends whether it is a casual, temp, contract or permanent.

    That's possibly the most offensive insult I've received on here, and I think you know it.

    I currently work through an agency on permanent contract or if I wish I can join the client instead but don't want to. The only thing I dislike is shift schedule isn't consistent, which means we get our shifts confirmed by email every single day and we do get one day guaranteed off work, the other day is back up, which means if volume rises up or someone doesn't turn up for work, we are being called in.

    I think it depends on agency, but you could always try But be aware of agencies offering contracts based on self-employed basis.. I've done that before and definitely will be avoiding it in the future. Too much hassle..
