  • The days of the week the individual will be working, whether these hours will vary and how they will vary
  • Details of paid leave entitlement (including maternity, paternity etc) or details of where this can be found
  • Details of remuneration and benefits offered
  • Any probationary period, its length and any conditions attached to it
  • Any training entitlement provided by the employer, including whether any training is mandatory and/or must be paid for by the worker
  • Any entitlement to paid leave, including maternity leave and paternity leave (or details about where this information can be found)
  • Details of any mandatory training, provided by the employer, which the worker must complete, and any mandatory training that is required which the employer will not pay for
