We can’t do the fantastic work we do without having the right people. And we can’t have the right people unless we reward them suitably for the hard work they do. We review our salary structure internally and externally (both the social housing sector and the general market) so we can make sure our offering is competitive, current and aligned to the role duties and expectations.
We want to help you achieve a happy work-life balance as well as maintain healthy physical and mental wellbeing. Worklife Plus is our flexible benefits scheme, offering a great choice of benefits which you can choose and manage online if you wish. If you join us, you could benefit from:
23 days holiday per year, increasing each year to a maximum of 28 days after 5 years’ service, plus public holidays. And what’s more, we gift you an extra 3 days holiday to use between Christmas and New Year!
The chance to buy up to 5 days extra leave per year
£250 in vouchers when successfully referring someone to work for us
Cycle2Work scheme – Get fit and save money with our Cycle2Work scheme which allows you to purchase a bicycle and equipment (up to the value of £1,000) tax and VAT free!
Retirement Plan - Saving for your retirement is more rewarding as we’ll pay in too – up to 9%. Of course, you’re welcome to pay in more if you wish
Healthcare cash plan - We automatically provide you with a scheme which allows you to claim cash back on dental, optical, physiotherapy, plus a wide range of health & wellbeing treatments. As part of this we also provide BUPA member offers including cinema, restaurant and entertainment discounts
Personal Medical Plan - Our Private Medical Plan with AXA helps you avoid the long waits and hassle of NHS waiting lists and to receive treatment in comfort within a timescale more suitable for you. You can also choose to cover your partner and/or children, at additional cost.
But that’s not all…
We know that each and every colleague in our business has a life outside of work. It should never be forgotten that our colleague’s wellbeing is our main priority. By offering flexible working, we’re more likely to meet the needs of our colleagues and help to create a happier, more motivated and agile workforce.
We offer the following choices under our flexibility policy:
Term time only working
Flexitime and opportunities to work remotely
As a ‘thank you’ for your hard work and ongoing commitment to us, we’ll reward you with gift vouchers for every 5 years of service with us so you can treat yourself!
We love to celebrate our successes and shout about the great work we do. With this in mind, we encourage colleagues to give praise when they’ve been particularly impressed by a certain colleague or team who have gone above and beyond their call of duty. We enjoy recognising and rewarding our colleagues who provide an outstanding service to customers; both internally and externally.
We have the Unmind App available to all colleagues to download and benefit from. Also we have a wellbeing calendar with various activities to help keep a healthy body and mind, along with a dedicated wellbeing intranet site. Wellbeing Wednesdays are something we’re passionate about and we encourage all colleagues to take a ‘quiet quarter’ which is 15 minutes out of the day to use the support available to them and focus on their wellbeing; whether it’s yoga, a brisk walk, listening to some music or a podcast. It’s important to take time out and take care of your wellbeing and we support you to do that.
