Benefits and rewards
Brilliant work deserves brilliant rewards. From competitive salaries, to flexible working options, time off for volunteering to helping you reach your career goals...we’ve got you covered. In fact, we offer everything you need to help you be the best you can be in your role and make a big difference to life outside of work too.
We pride ourselves on our competitive salaries and our annual pay awards and mutual bonus payment are just some of the ways we’ll reward you.
A proper work life balance
Whether it’s needing to be home on time for the school run, letting the dog out for a lunchtime walk or just being more flexible on when and where you work, we’re okay with that. From flexible working hours to special leave, we’ll work with you to make sure you don’t miss out on those important life moments.
High street rewards and discounts
Who doesn't want to stretch their pay that little bit further? We offer over 800 high street discounts, interest free loans, discounted breakdown cover and payment plans to purchase the latest IT gadgets. You can also save lots on your day-to-day expenses such as the weekly shop, DIY projects or holidays and days out.
Globetrotter or homebird?
25 days annual leave (on top of bank holidays) is given as standard, rising a day a year up to 30 days. Fancy a little bit more? Then why not buy up to five days extra days leave.
Work with the latest tech
Our IT kit helps you get your job done; whether working from home, on the road or office based. Our dedicated IS team are on hand to help set up and keep you running.
Help you build your retirement nest egg
No one wants to work forever, right? We’ll help you plan for your future with our generous pension scheme and our Life Assurance will give you and your loved ones peace of mind too.
When it's time to start or grow your family
We want you to enjoy this precious time with financial reassurance through our enhanced maternity, adoption, parental leave and pay. And when it’s time to return to work, we’ll help you ease back, as well as work with you to make your role as flexible as we can.
You're amazing and we want to shout about that
We love to shine the spotlight on our fantastic colleagues, whether that’s sending a ‘thank you’ e-card, being nominated for our Home Heroes monthly rewards or entering our annual Home Star awards. We really want to give you credit where it’s due.
We'll help you look after the pennies, so the pounds grow too
Our Financial Wellbeing support will help you manage your money even better. You can also join our colleague saving scheme, saving directly from your salary for life’s bigger spends such as Christmas, that once in a lifetime holiday or just a well-deserved treat for yourself.
Fancy a brand-new set of wheels? Hit the road in style with our competitive car scheme.
Volunteer your time, on our time
Finding the spare time to volunteer for things that are important to you can be tricky with work and life commitments. Don’t worry; we’ll give you two days paid leave each year to help those who need it most.
Your wellbeing matters
To support you to be at your best, we offer a range of health and wellbeing support, from 24-hour access to a free counselling and advice service, mental health first aiders, flexible working requests, financial wellbeing support, meditation and coaching. We’re here for you when life throws a curve ball.
We offer a fantastic range of career development tools, talks, courses and e-learning to help you progress your learning and develop your career. And if you don’t have them already, we’ll help you to achieve qualifications if required for your role. With access to thousands of learning resources, you’ll be supported both personally and professionally.
Climbing the career ladder
If you’re ready to move up the career ladder, take a sideways step to broaden your skills, be the best you can be in your current role or even start out on a brand new career path, our careers toolkit will inspire and support you to unleash your potential and build a brilliant career with us.
