the best thing about the benefits package is the gym membership, they cover you up to £50 per month which is great!
BPS provide a good gym allowance.
Great if you are looking to get an industry-recognised qualification and some fluffy summer/Christmas parties. Aside from that, the salaries are way below the market rate and pay rises are heavily based on targets, this is very black and white with little room for manoeuvre. A lot of the staff feel it should also be based on general contributions to the company and length of service. Commission scheme is pretty much non-existent and has changed more times than I care to admit, each time worsening the employee's takehome. Claims of flexible working where possible and it seems that the possibilities are extremely low, unless you are in the Senior Management team . General benefits like eyecare and cycle to work scheme are offered however, they also count free fruit, tea and coffee as a 'benefit'. A telephone counselling service was offered however, HR would repeatedly ask in private if you had used this in order to understand if it was effective (most likely pertaining to cost), for the business. It made the service seem like more of a front to show care for mental health as opposed to an actual caring for the mental health of their employees.
As ann apprentice it is shocking, to put all the work and effort in only to be rewarded with a tiny salary and little access to the benifits.
The free gym membership is great - The phone contribution is very good as well. The pension contribution could be improved.
Helpful with Gym membership as there is a gym 2 minute walk away. Wish there was more of a focus on benefits however
cycle to work , and Gym ............. No healthcare, No life assurance nothing that would be of interest to anyone over 20
