Our reward package
A salary that is competitive and benchmarked, with annual salary increments awarded until the maximum of the scale is reached on 1 April subject to:
- A minimum service of 6 months
- Satisfactory progress being made
- The commencing salary of appointment is dependent upon levels of experience and qualifications.
Time out? We’ll give you 26 days annual leave from 1 April to 31 March each year, plus 11 Bank Holidays and other local holidays (pro rata for part-time employees). Employees appointed part way through a holiday year will receive a proportionate entitlement. Additionally, we reward long service with additional leave, rising to 29 days after 5 years and 30 days after 10 years.
We’re flexible. Our normal working hours are 37 hours per week (Monday to Friday). Having working times that can be varied means that, within certain limits, employees can flex their daily hours to suit their own circumstances. Benefits of the flexi-time scheme which is applicable to full- and part-time employees include:
- Ability to be 15 hours in credit and 10 hours in debit
- Ability to take 1 full day or 2 half days per 4 week period in flexi-leave
- Ability to convert flexi-time to banked annual leave (up to 8 days per annum)
- Online flexi-time and annual leave recording system
