    Placement comes first. You will be expected to fit Tesco in around placement, not the other way around.

    Some placements will have a degree of flexibility, but your shifts will generally mirror your mentor and so it depends what they work. It also depends on the shift patterns of that ward. Do they do long day or short, 7.5hour, shifts.

    No. Often off duty isn't done more than a few weeks in advance, if you're lucky. It depends on the ward.

    You're better off not having set shifts, if possible. It isn't really feasible around placement. How flexible can Tesco be with you?

    Tesco needs to fit round placement. At the minute my placement is Monday to Friday so I can't do any side work at the minute. If you was doing long days you'd do 3 so maybe you could fit tesco in them other 4 days but you'd be shattered! All depends on the bigger picture and what hours you do at tesco
