    Time Off

    I was reading Peter's replies, and it's an interesting one about Time off, at my work we can join a scheme called "Gimmie-5!" - which means everyone gets five days paid leave each year to do community based activities (Including Scouting) and Scouting is actually encouraged. It's so populat at work, I don't know why other companies don't introduce such a scheme.

    So which company do you work for then Matt? I have only just changed my job, and don't feel I can ask for time off just yet. May ask nearer the time of summer camp.
