Works perks

  • Enhanced maternity/adoption and paternity pay

    13 weeks full pay for any colleague taking maternity/adoption leave and 1 week full pay for colleagues taking paternity leave.

  • Take your birthday off

    Let's be honest, who wants to go to work on their birthday? That's why every colleague gets their birthday off, on top of their holiday allowance.

  • Health cash plan

    To support you with your wellbeing, the health cash plan lets you claim back costs for a range of treatments including costs towards private consultants fees, tests, scans and private dental treatment as well as much more.

  • Enhanced pension scheme

    We are pleased to offer colleagues an enhanced employer contribution into their pension scheme, meaning our contributions are higher than the minimum required.

  • Employee assistance program

    All colleagues are given confidential access to speak to a counsellor or specialist adviser to help you deal with any personal or professional problems that could be affecting your home life or work life, health and general wellbeing.

  • Life assurance

    If the worst should happen, the last thing your family needs is to be worrying about money. That’s why in the event of a colleague’s death we will make a payment to your family to support them financially.

But wait, there's even more!
