We give all of our employees the option to take one day paid each year for volunteering so they can support the charitable causes closest to them.

Other benefits we offer our employees include up to 5% pension contribution and a grade specific flexible benefit pot to use throughout the year on a range of benefits (including mandatory private health plan, Death in Service and Income Protection) from gym membership and restaurant discount cards, to travel insurance and additional health insurance – and much more.
