  • Sick Pay(5 comments)

    Good sick pay offered from the organisation. Full pay. They are a caring organisation.

  • Work From Home(3 comments)

    If you need to work from home you can.

  • Flexible Working(3 comments)

    Flexitime is dependent on Manager / Department. The Company offers this but one still feels they have to be in by 9.00am.

Good benefits. Generous leave 30-33 days depending on which grade. There are a variety of activities that staff are encouraged to undertake during their lunch times which creates a fantastic work life balance! Highly recommended. Good pension!
