    An aerial view from a drone would be better I guess.

    How often do you work 40 hours a week?

    If your last journey is to somewhere far do you travel back home or get put in a hotel?

    How does scheduling work?

    Our average working week is 36 hours.

    We always start and finish at my station (Leeds)

    Shifts variate in duration (maximum 10 hours) and you always have at least 3 days off during the week.
