Our varied benefits package covers everything from wellness and family, to work-life balance and finances.
Our employees receive 34 days of annual leave per year with an added option to buy up to an additional 10 via our Holiday Plus scheme. We promote flexible working to help employees strike an optimal work/life balance. Emergency day passes are available for all our employees because sometimes things come up.
Our pension contribution is generous, and we offer all our employees the opportunity to buy shares at a discounted rate. A wide range of retail discounts are available through SSE Advantage and all our employees have access to a free, award-winning third-party provider of financial education. We offer Technology Loans to assist with any IT purchases.
We want our people to make choices that support our efforts in reaching net zero carbon. That's why we're a proud member of the Cycle to Work scheme and all employees have access to an interest free salary advance to cover public transport season tickets.
We're a family friendly employer who understands that balancing work and family life can be a juggling act. We champion agile working and offer enhanced maternity and paternity pay. New mums and adoptive mums receive 21 weeks full pay and new dads receive 10 days paternity pay. Women returning to work after maternity leave are able to work 80% of their hours whilst on full pay to help ease their transition back.
Our employees have access to free and confidential counselling because we recognise that mental wellbeing is just as important as physical. We also offer discounted private healthcare access to BUPA. Our Gym Flex/FitHub scheme allows our employees to take advantage of subsidised gym memberships.
Everyone who works with us has the chance to Be the Difference and take a paid day away from their usual job to volunteer in the community.
