We've constructed databases of standard rosters (rotas, shift patterns, work schedules) to help you choose one that suits your operation and  "social" requirements - for example, those relating to:

  • frequency of weekends off
  • maximum working block sizes
  • minimum number of consecutive rest days (eg. no single rest days)
  • minimum number of rest days following nights
  • maximum number of consecutive nights
  • working blocks of the same shift or rotation of shifts within blocks


We currently have the following available. If your type of roster is not included in the lists, please phone 01273 202880 and one of our staff can discuss with you the possibilities of setting you up with a database of options.
