I have been working for an agency for 4 years now, doing the same job, on the same site for 3 and a half of those.

A couple of years ago, the company started taking on 'flexi' workers.

A couple of months ago, i was advised to apply for this round of 'flexi' jobs.

I asked if the job i have been doing is available as one of those jobs, and was told,

in no uncertain terms, that no, there will never be a flexi worker doing that job.

On that basis, i didnt apply.

I have discovered yesterday, that indeed the flexis are taking over that job.

Is there anything i can do?

the flexis they gave the job to, are less skilled, and much less experienced, and at least one is waiting to get his qualification so he can even start training.

question everything!

you were advised to apply


you did not apply


not sure what else you think anyone can do.. advise company you are interested if anyone drops out?

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

If you are employed by an agency and placed on a job, even for an extended period, there is no obligation to offer you a permanent position.


You are though entitled to be informed about vacancies within the workplace that the agency has placed you with. If the employer has not given you the opportunity to apply then you may have grounds to complain that your rights under the Agency Workers Directive 2010


But - as stated above, you have not helped your case by failing to apply in the past

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

ok, i just wondered is all, i was specifically told that the job i had been doing for the last 3.5 years was not one of those on offer to the flexi workers.

That is the only reason i didnt apply.

Having thought about it tho, for the last couple of days, im going to move on after christmas anyways.

question everything!
