We recognise that we are only as successful as the people we employ, and we are committed to valuing our team. We offer way more than just a salary that’s paid on time.
When you start working for us you will benefit from 26 days holiday plus eight bank holidays. If you are needed to work on bank holidays you will benefit from enhanced pay.
After five years continuous service, you will be rewarded with an additional five days holiday a year. After ten years continuous service, you will benefit from another two days holiday a year totalling 33 days holiday a year. Add that to the 8 bank holiday’s and you could have 41 paid holiday’s a year.
As well as rewarding long service with extra holiday we also have loyalty awards!
If you work part time, your holiday is calculated in proportion to the hours you work, known as pro rata. Please note; teachers and youth workers holiday may vary, but this will be explained in your job advert.

Depending on the job, we offer lots of working options to ensure you can balance your work and home life in harmony.
All this and more are supported by our family friendly and special leave policies. For some jobs we offer hybrid working. We will equip you with the tools to do your job from the most appropriate place including state of the art offices, out in the community as well as at home.
