Recruit Mint is continuing to monitor official government guidance on Coronavirus (COVID-19) which is constantly being updated and adapted to keep up with developments in this global issue.

Currently we are still business as usual and will remain the same until we are no longer able to. We understand this is an uncertain time for all with the possibility of loss of hours or even redundancy very much a possibility. At this moment in time we have multiple immediate start opportunities available, if you need to find work you can find these opportunities here.

If you’re self-isolating because of Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency legislation was brought forward. You’ll be able to get SSP from the first day you’re self-isolating and cannot work. This began from 13th March. If you’re not sure where you stand with statutory sick pay, you can find out everything you need via the link below.
