answer text <p>The House of Commons is an accredited London Living Wage Employer. In order to obtain our licence the House had to satisfy the Living Wage Foundation that no directly employed or contracted workers engaged to work on the Parliamentary estate are paid less than the London Living Wage (LLW). The House of Commons has gone further than its obligations under this licence by adopting a policy of assuring that all contractors supplying a service to the House, regardless of whether they work on the Estate, are paid at least a living wage.</p><p>The House is committed to offering guaranteed minimum hours contracts to all directly-employed staff on call-off (zero hours) contracts and has recently completed a process of offering guaranteed minimum hours contracts to all affected staff. The only call-off contracts that remain relate to two employees who have yet to accept or who preferred not to accept our offer.</p><p>We do not have information on whether or how many contracted workers are employed on zero hours contracts.</p><p> </p>

answer text The House Service runs an apprenticeship scheme that offers 10 placements each year. The scheme was launched in 2013. Apprentices complete a 12-month placement, studying to NVQ levels 2 or 3. The first cohort of 10 apprentices studied and completed an NVQ in Business Administration, and all 10 secured jobs at the end of their apprenticeship with the House Service. The second cohort started in September 2014, with one studying for a Professional Cookery level 3 qualification. The House of Commons does not hold definitive information about the number of apprentices working for contractors on the estate. However, there are at least 13 apprentices currently working on the estate who are employed by contractors. more like this
