Our pension scheme

OK so it may be a long way off yet. And your pension may not be the first benefit you think about. But we’ve put together an amazing, award-winning pension scheme that offers you more. You see, we’ll look after you, even when you’ve stopped working here. What are we talking about? These are just some of the benefits you could enjoy if you join our pension plan:

  • We don’t just match employee contributions – in some cases we double them. You could benefit from up to 11.5% employer contributions, which could go a long way to building up your pension pot.
  • You’ll get 5x life assurance cover to provide peace of mind for you and your family.
  • It comes with free income protection and enhanced sick cover.
  • You won’t pay income tax on your contributions and if you pay them through salary sacrifice, you’ll pay less tax and national insurance.
