We aim to be the premium department store of choice and our comprehensive and competitive compensation and benefits package reflects our continuing interest in the financial future and health of our employees. These are just some of the benefits you could enjoy if you join our team:
You will enjoy up to 30 days paid holiday a year if you work in Stores or up to 28 days if you are based in the Store Support Centre. If you are a member of the Store Support Centre or Store Management team, you will also have the opportunity to purchase up to one weeks holiday. We also give prospective parents both maternity and paternity leave, including those adopting.
We give you generous discount on merchandise within our stores. In addition all employees can take advantage of fantastic discounts and offers with partner suppliers including leisure centres, restaurants, theme parks, theatres, health plans and insurers, such as Alton Towers, HSA, Denplan and Ticketmaster to name but a few.
You have the opportunity to save on childcare fees through our childcare voucher scheme, operated through salary exchange. Tax and National Insurance (NI) savings can be made up to £243 per month, depending on the rate that you pay tax and NI.
We regularly review our salaries against other retailers to ensure that you are paid at competitive rates.
We offer eligible employees the opportunity to join the Company Pension Scheme. This arrangement offers valuable benefits in retirement, as well as protection for you and your family whilst working with us.
All employees benefit from free life assurance equivalent to their basic salary in the event of their death. For members of our Pension Scheme, this increases to up to four times basic salary.
We believe passionately about sharing our business success. Our bonus schemes for the Store Support Centre and Stores are designed to incentivise and motivate you to achieve outstanding results at both team and Company level.
Interest Free Annual Season Ticket loans for bus, rail and parking tickets are available to all employees irrespective of location, from a minimum value of £200 up to a maximum of £5,000 per annum.
We appreciate those who have worked with us for a long time and celebrate the completion of certain periods of service, recognising 10, 15, 25 and 35 years of service. Retirement gifts are presented to eligible employees with over 20 years service on retirement.
