All our employees enjoy 34 days of annual leave per year (including public holidays) with the option to buy up to an additional 10 days via our Holiday Plus scheme.
We champion agile working across the business to help our people achieve an optimal work/life balance. Emergency day passes are available for all our employees for those days when unexpected things come up.
We make a generous pension contribution and offer all our employees the opportunity to buy shares at a discounted rate.
Everyone has free access to an award-winning third-party provider of financial education and can access a wide range of retail discounts through our SSE Advantage scheme. We also offer Technology Loans to help with any big digital purchases.
We recognise that mental wellbeing is just as important as physical and have set up an employee assistance programme which offers free and confidential counselling 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, our employees can access discounted private healthcare from Bupa.
We allow all our employees the chance to ‘Be the Difference’ and take a paid day away from their usual job to volunteer in the communities we serve.
We know that balancing work and busy family life can be difficult. That’s why we pride ourselves on being a family-friendly employer. In addition to promoting agile working, we offer enhanced maternity and paternity pay. New mums and adoptive mums receive 21 weeks full pay and new dads receive 10 days paternity pay.
Mothers returning to work after maternity leave can take advantage of working 80% of their hours on full pay to help ease their transition back to work.
Enabling our people to make choices that contribute to our journey towards net zero is important to us. That’s why we offer all employees an interest-free salary advance to cover public transport season tickets. We’re also a proud member of the Cycle to Work scheme.
