    Hi. The job is for 12 hours a week which are the 3 days you are open. I just wanted to confirm that all the tasks mentioned will be completed when at the Hub and there are no out of hours tasks. Also, please confirm that this is definitely a freelance job as it seems to be very fixed hours which seems to be an employee type role?
