Hi, I think it doesn't have a hole so you can mount it with the draining board to the left or the right.

You can make a hole the old-fashioned way if you are careful and not in a hurry.  Mark the size of the hole and drill a circle of small holes just inside, like perforations. If you get them close enough or overlapping, you can push the middle bit out to give a jagged hole about the right size. Then file it smooth.

 you get a trepan try it on some junk metal first, so you don' damage your sink. Best of luck!

I belive the circular cutting head is called a "trépan"

If you look underneath, sometimes there are circles where the metal is thinner which allow you to cut a hole - there are often two possible choices, depending on where you want your tap.  Still need one of those circular cutting heads though, I'm afraid.

Normally the ones without holes are for taps mounted in the worktop.

why not take it back and exchange it for one that has holes in the correct place for you, I am sure Brick will exchange it for you without issue.
