More on the pension scheme

Work-life balance

We understand the the importance of a good work-life balance and will offer flexible working to suit your personal circumstances wherever possible. We also recognise that employees may need to be absent from work from time to time to support their home lives and have leave procedures in place to support this.

Discount and salary sacrifice schemes

We participate in a number of schemes, including a staff lottery and cycle to work scheme.
