Blimey, I wasn't very clear in my opening post. I already work in residential and was just browsing at jobs in the same field. This was in a job advert I came across. I just thought it was a bit weird.
It’s basically 24 hours on then 24 hours off isn’t it? So I think would meet WT regs etc, and finishing at 10 would still feel like a whole day off for me. (Disclaimer: don’t work in the sector and don’t know what is normal.)
*10am on Tues to 10am on Weds is 24 hours. You will go to bed at 11 O'Clock and will be on a sleepover allowance and back on duty at 7.00am
At my current job we would start at 1 o'clock and go to bed at 10.30 hours, sleep over and be on duty at 7.00hrs and work until 2 o'clock but we are off from 2 o'clock and all of the following day and not start until at least 2 o'clock the day after. We also get two days off together. This job looks like you don't get any full days off.

Legally speaking, 24 hours is a day Yeah, I guess I'm just used to having a better work life balance and having complete days away from the workplace.i think thsas why I was shocked at the time, especially with leaving at 10.00am, that's eating into your day.
I don't think any of the team will be applying for it!
