The health and wellbeing of our employees is extremely important to us.

The pension contributions are based on a salary sacrifice route to reduce your national insurance contributions. You will also be registered on our life assurance scheme of up to three times your salary once you join the group personal pension.

Season ticket loan

We appreciate that some of our employees rely on public transport to get to work and travel tickets can be quite costly. Therefore, we offer our employees a loan to purchase an annual season ticket. This way, employees can benefit from discounted travel tickets and repay the loan over an agreed period of time.

Computing scheme

We offer our employees access to a wide range of the latest IT equipment including highly desirable Apple products for their personal use. The cost is simply deducted monthly from the salary via a convenient salary sacrifice agreement benefitting from national insurance savings.

Financial Education

We think it’s important that our employees have the skills and knowledge needed to help them deal with financial challenges such as understanding how their pension works, retirement planning, mortgages and sometimes dealing with debt, as such we provide educational sessions and telephone support delivered via a confidential third party service.

Office facilities

Our employees are our greatest assets and we take their wellbeing very seriously. We offer high-spec office facilities with bigger than average desk space, latest technology and ergonomic chair, as well as a range of free refreshments. Employees who drive to work also benefit from free parking.

Activities and Culture Team

Just as the name suggests we have a team of people made up from all the departments who make up the Activities and Culture Team (ACT).  Each year the ACT team takes suggestions on a variety of activities from anyone who would like to nominate an activity.  Past activities have included Velodrome Cycling Sessions, Theatre Nights out, Painting classes, Hot Yoga classes the list goes on.

The suggestions are then short listed depending on how many people would like to participate and the ACT team then organises the event, usually the cost of the main activity is covered by the business.  It’s a great way to experience something new and to get to know colleagues form across the business in a more social setting.

Activities and culture.

Why Don’t We?

We have created a ‘Why don’t we?’ ethos encouraging our employees to contribute to the direction of the business culture and bringing ideas forward to improve us as a company. We have a designated committee that will review all ideas that have been received and consider each suggestion keeping in mind the main business objectives.

As part of this, we developed a bespoke team away day, where all employees took part in an art training to strengthen team work and bring the team closer together. The final art piece is now displayed in our offices.
