Please fill in your request for annual leave below.

Note: we cannot guarantee that your request will be granted. We always do our best to allow you the holiday you want, but sometimes that isn’t possible.

It isn’t possible for everyone to go away at the same time, because we need to keep our projects going.

Remember if you travel to another country, and need to quarantine when you return to the UK, any self-isolation period must taken as annual leave.

Click here to go to the government website for the latest rules on overseas travel and quarantine restrictions.

So when you request holiday, make sure you allow enough time for your holiday away plus the self-isolation period after you get back to the UK.

Before you use this form:

  • Please be aware that we can’t always approve all the leave you have asked for.
  • Do not pay for a holiday unless your labour manager has approved your request!
  • If you usually work weekends, please make it clear which days you will be away.
  • You may not take more than two weeks’ leave at a time without special permission.

If you have any questions, please talk to your labour manager.
