As most will know, Zero hours Contracts aren't a new thing at all, just re-named. I've worked on this basis on and off in the NHS for years. Even as far back as the 1980's they were known as ad-hoc contracts and as a working mum with 3 children this arrangement suited me just fine. I was still able to add to my NHS pension, pay NI and tax for any hours worked. I had flexibility with holidays and tried to work around the children when I could. This was my choice and I had the opportunity to be made permanent on many occasions but while the children were young I chose to remain on this arrangement. Obviously when they were older I was employed on a permanent contract, not without its pitfalls though, eg, fighting to book time off more than a year in advance! As Caz says, it certainly isn't one size fits all. I've also taken early retirement from the NHS by choice and am now back on a zero hours contact with a private company which again fits in perfectly with my life.
