Unusual washing machine waste pipe connection & leak

I have a slight leak from my waste pipe connection under the sink. The previous homeowner installed the kitchen and the pipes are different to what I've seen before. There is a grey pipe which sticks up and I've simply pushed the waste pipe onto that, as there's no other way to do it. 

Should I just fit a jubilee clip around the waste pipe, or do the pipes need changing to something more standard?

I would normally use a plastic cable tie or jubilee clip to fasten the drain hose on. You might also consider using some plumbers tape to warp round the plastic pipe first. Don't over tighten a jubilee clip onto a plastic pipe though.
