Our Benefits packages recognise that, in common with most of our teams you value earning a competitive salary and holidays: enjoy having the choice of numerous other benefits and relish the opportunity to earn extra rewards.
Some of the benefits enjoyed by our employees are outlined below:
You will enjoy up to 33 days paid holiday a year. In addition, if you are a member of a Store Support Centre or Store Management team, you will also have the opportunity to purchase up to two week’s 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 over 60 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 rates 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 all 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 may increase up to four times their basic salary.
We believe passionately about sharing our business success. Our bonus schemes for the Store Support Centres and Stores are designed to incentivise and motivate you to achieve outstanding results at both team and Company level.
Our Sales teams are our Brand Ambassadors and we want you to be able to showcase your love of our Brands to our customers. To help you achieve the look that makes you feel sensational, we offer a seasonal business dress allowance.
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 are proud to recognise team members, who have worked with us for a long time and so we have special celebrations on the completion of 10, 15, 25 and 35 years of service.
Retirement gifts are also presented to eligible employees with over 20 years’ service on retirement.
