Taking care of our staff
We offer a number of benefits including:
We are committed to paying above the London Living Wage, therefore we offer competitive salaries with annual reviews.
Our pension scheme includes generous employer contributions. If you contribute 3%, we’ll contribute 7%.
We appreciate that regular holiday is essential for you to be at your best. Our staff enjoy 25 days of annual leave plus bank holidays. This increases by one day a year (after five years of service).
We don’t want you to worry about money while unwell, so we offer a generous sick pay scheme – giving up to 65 days basic pay in any rolling 12-month period.
We understand that our staff don’t leave their home life at the door! As such, we offer flexible working hours, give team members a paid day off if they move home and offer everyone an additional five days of paid leave a year for home care emergencies.
Family Leave We are fully committed to helping our working parents achieve a work life balance, and encourage all staff to take leave during the early weeks following birth or adoption. As a result we have very generous company maternity, adoption and paternity policies paying up to 16 weeks of enhanced pay.
Season ticket loan
After your first six months, you can apply for an interest-free season ticket loan to cover the cost of a travel season ticket.
Cycle to work scheme
We help you save money on purchasing your bike and accessories.
Employee assistance programme
