Please tick as relevant:

I don't need anyone to tell me how I should do my work, I am paid to decide this for myself, provided only the end result of what I do meets quality standards.

I need someone to tell me and/or show me how to do the job.

Apart from being told what it is that needs to be done, I expect to organise how I spend my own working time myself, to do the work in my own way.

I need someone to manage my working time for me.
