Annual leave

Employees are entitled to 30 days paid annual leave during the calendar year.

Flexible working

We recognise the importance of helping you balance your work and home life by offering flexible working arrangements.

Our policy is to offer flexible working patterns so you can apply for part time hours, job share, staggered hours, annualised hours and term-time hours.

Public holidays

Our employees benefit from thirteen days paid public holiday during the calendar year.

Flexi time

Flexi time allows you to vary your start and finish times at work to suit your personal circumstances, including travel arrangements.

Buy additional annual leave

In addition to your entitlement of annual leave and public holidays, you can buy additional annual leave using salary sacrifice.

Enhanced sick pay

We offer enhanced occupational sick pay. Your entitlement to enhanced sick pay will depend on your length of service and includes periods of full and half pay.

Time off for dependents

Time off for dependents allows you to take a reasonable amount of time off work to deal with unexpected or sudden emergencies and to enable you to make longer term arrangements.

Although employment legislation does not entitle you to paid periods of absence, we would normally offer paid leave to cover such emergencies.

Health cash plan

An enhanced free healthcare benefit is available to you through a healthcare cash plan. This plan offers a wide range of benefits including money back towards everyday healthcare expenses.

This can help you to cover the cost of  treatments including optical care, dental care, and physiotherapy.

There is also a 24 hour helpline which offers counselling and legal advice.

Special leave

You can apply for special leave if you need to be absent from work in circumstances not covered by our other leave arrangements.

For example, paid special leave includes leave for compulsory relocation, marriage and civil partnership ceremonies, and bereavement.


As well as our free healthcare benefit, you can buy additional cover or insurance from a suite of healthcare plans.
