Bethany Christian Trust is a national charity working across Scotland to change the story of homelessness. We run 30 key services from Stornoway to Edinburgh, supporting over 7000 people each year. From our fleet of care vans delivering a warm meal and a chat to people in need, to community employability drop-ins and supported housing, we are here to support individuals at any stage of their journey out of homelessness.

We are committed to helping our employees flourish personally and professionally. Below are a few examples of the ways we support our employees.

  • Bethany provides 30 days of annual leave initially to all contracted staff, rising to a maximum of 40 days depending on length of service.
  • Bethany provides enhanced payments for maternity, paternity, and adoption.
  • Bethany operates a company pension scheme to which all staff are auto-enrolled, with option to opt out. We will match any staff member’s pension contribution up to a maximum of 5%.
  • Bethany provides a death in service benefit scheme.
