Good range of Benefits which are always being reviewed and added to
Fruit Mondays, Onsite Parking, Employee Assistance Program, Death in Service Protection, Good Holiday
Cycle to work scheme, child care vouchers, unpaid leave, maternity leave
Much improved now the new maternity/paternity pay has been introduced! I've saved a lot of money using the first perks portal access (discounts off high street shops and more) and the new car park is a huge improvement! Plenty of space for all.
First Utility seem to have a benefit package for every one who works here whether it's to do with fitness & health or because you have children or starting a family, or if you want to be educated and move department they have courses and schemes that allow you to do this and explore within the company therefore letting you express yourself and your interests - they seem to cater for everyone and really look after their employees.
Benefits package I feel is good overall. Pension contribution could be better.
Basic wage is at or slight above market average. Flexible working ('agile working') though never properly briefed out is available in about 80% of the depts and it's good to know the company has that faith in their workforce overall that you can self manage you time like that. The often lauded perks portal is just a glorified discount voucher scheme that gives occasional worthy discounts (that could be found elsewhere) but really doesn't make up for the: poor pension or poor maternity/paternity package. BUPA is nice, though diagnostic only so no treatment involved. Cycle to work is a government initiative and fruit on a Friday is nice but not really a benefit
The best thing about working for First Utility is the partnership with Private Bupa Health Cover. It has helped with advice in what was needed when my health took a downturn
Paid time off for medical appointment, Holiday plus bank holidays, Overtime premium, shift swapping, Perkes website for retailers including cashback and discounts.
Very basic offering, they offer the bare minimum recommended by the government.
