Zero-hours contracts make up one in four offers to jobless

Recruitment website Glassdoor has claimed that nearly one in four jobs being offered to the unemployed are on zero-hours contracts which give no guarantee of work. Researchers found that nearly half of those looking for work had rejected such offers. The company found that 23% of unemployed adults were offered a zero-hours contract, with 47% turning them down. About 30% of jobseekers were unhappy with the irregular hours, 54% said they needed to be assured of a guaranteed level of income, and 13% said they were put off by negative press coverage.
