We provide a range of enhanced benefits for staff, including a starting annual leave entitlement of 25 working days which will increase by 1 day for every full year of service completed (up to a maximum of 30 working days) plus 10 Public Holidays (pro-rata), a 6% employer contribution pension scheme, life assurance scheme, employee rewards and enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave. A full list of our benefits is available on our website.

We actively support the ability to work flexibly and remotely, and all staff are provided with the ICT kit and home set-ups needed to minimise travel and promote a work-life balance.
