Family-friendly and work-life balance policies
We regularly review our policies to ensure they reflect the changing lifestyle patterns of our staff with family or other commitments. We offer a number of posts on a part-time basis and provide a childcare voucher scheme.
We offer an above sector average annual leave entitlement of 30 days per year (pro rata for part-time staff), and three fixed 'extra' days holiday to be taken at Christmas in addition to statutory Bank Holidays.
We offer a defined contribution pension to all employees.
Employee Assistance Programme
We provide a confidential external advice service run by qualified advisors.
Learning and development
We offer a wide range of training and development opportunities for those within post.
Equality and diversity
We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity. This is reflected in our work and employment practices.
We support and lead Open to All: a campaign to encourage charities to only require degrees from applicants when strictly necessary for a role.
Staff recruitment is carried out by a panel and is based on the selection criteria designed for each post.
We offer interest-free loans for buying an annual season ticket or computer (after completion of probation). We also have a salary sacrifice travel scheme for Northern Ireland staff.
