We’re proud to offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package. This helps us to attract and retain great people which is the key to our continued success.
All colleagues start on a minimum of 22 days per annum, plus bank holidays. Depending on your contract, you may also benefit from incremental increases each year taking you up to 30 days. We also offer options to buy and sell annual leave for all colleagues (subject to qualifying criteria).
All new colleagues can join our salary sacrifice defined contribution pension scheme with flexible contribution levels between 3% and 7%. Better still, we’ll contribute double the amount you pay towards your pension investment.
You could save money every week by using our employee benefits portal. ‘Energise’ provides discounts and deals on well-known brands and online retailers. Whether it’s a saving on a big purchase or your weekly food shop, there are great offers available for all colleagues.
Why not improve your fitness by taking advantage of our Cycle to Work scheme (in partnership with Halfords). You can save up to 42% on the total cost of a bike or associated equipment.
You can even choose an electric bike up to a value of £2,500 and help us on our journey to net zero.
Our internal recognition ‘Spotlight’ awards recognise people who go the extra mile. Individual awards of £150 or team awards of £350 are available. Awards are issued as vouchers to use on our Energise employee benefits portal.
This great flexible voluntary benefit means you can claim back the cost of numerous medical treatments including dental, physio and optical costs for a small monthly payment.
We have negotiated beneficial rates for all colleagues who join. The plan includes up to four dependents for no extra cost and you can increase your payments to include your partner.
Working with our partner Health Assured, we are proud to offer an employee assistance programme that offers the very best practical support and advice for you.
The scheme offers impartial, confidential, free advice including counselling, financial and legal support.
The EAP is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is also available to family living with you free of charge!
In additional we provide a Wellbeing Centre via our employee benefits portal to support your physical, mental and financial wellbeing.
You can help us become a more sustainable business by moving to carbon free travel. All colleagues can access our online platform via ALD Select which offers great deals on electric and hybrid vehicles. If you qualify for a car allowance and you choose an electric or hybrid vehicle you can receive enhancements.
We also offer interest free loans for public transport season tickets or for the installation of home chargers
We have a comprehensive learning and development (L&D) portfolio to support continued learning for all our colleagues. The L&D team will also review further education requests, professional subscriptions and external training needs.
