Stay as you are RM are after getting rid of th FT roles and if the new 'overtime pay when your on holiday ' scheme comes in your not gaining anything.
If your on a 27hr and want to go home after 27hrs you can, if you want ot there will be some in either your own or a local office.

One of the side effects of "average holiday pay" will be less overtime.

Most people don't have the luxury of even asking the question.
If you are offered a full time contract - take it.
But if you financially don't need to then don't. Someone else will.

I totally disagree. A FT contract is GUARANTEED FT wages EVERY week. What if the OT dries up (which it will to some degree if RMs plans work)?
What about sick pay? (I don't know if that is averaged out on the previous 13 weeks wages like holiday pay should/will be).

Go FT as this guarantees full time pay all year, and it is better for your pension when you retire as you would have paid more into it and also RM would have paid more into your pension as well
