Recruiters require greater clarity on the finer detail of just how Labour plan to implement plans for a four-day week.

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell revealed at the Labour Party Conference yesterday, that if elected, Labour would cut the average working week in the UK to 32 hours within 10 years.

The move would reduce the working week to the equivalent of four days, although it would not necessarily mean a day off as other methods could be used to cut hours and could be done with no loss of pay, according to McDonnell.
