Puts it above higher paying employers. Great leave entitlement, support for staff health. Maternity leave package is great too. Pension fab.
Good high street discount scheme
The overtime for a sergeant is paid at a very good rate
Good benefits including health insurance and holiday.
Best is the TFL transport pass allowing access to the TFL network with your police Oyster card and warrant card carried together. You are required to step in/call for assistance if there is an incident on the vehicle you are in, which means nights out are best traveled by minicab to avoid having to deal with an incident whilst drinking.
free travel on TFL in London. Not much else to be honest.
The pension is not what it used to be but still good. Overall there are some good benefits but good luck accessing them
excellent flexible working arrangements that is not rivalled by any other organisation
You can obtain a blue lights card which gives discount on retailers. You can book the time back from the overtime you do. Overtime is X1.5
Constsntly working against the tide with to few police, public given unrealustic expectations and tasks set knowing they cannot be achieved within policies set
