Our benefit package 

Below is a summary of our benefit package.  This is based on a standard full-time employee contract and any benefits may be pro-rata for part-time or temporary employees.

Hours of work

Our standard hours of work is Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, 35 hours per week.  

We operate a non-contractual flexi time scheme.  The scheme allows employees the opportunity to work flexibly to improve their work-life balance.  This allows employees to start a bit earlier, finish a bit earlier, and leave at 4pm on Fridays.

Living wage

We are committed to tackling in-work poverty and have made a commitment to be a Glasgow Living Wage employer. 

The living wage is a term used to describe the minimum hourly wage necessary for housing, nutrition and basic needs (such as utilities, clothing, etc.).  This goes beyond the national minimum wage and is calculated independently.

Pension Scheme

From a defined benefit to defined contribution options, we have pension options suitable for every personal circumstance. 

We have employee contributions ranging from 3% to 13.25%, and employer contributions ranging from 5% to 13.85%


We have an employee assistance programme, which provides our employees with free and confidential counselling.  


With up to 40 days leave per year, we have a generous leave package.  

Our leave year runs from 1 April to 31 March and is split between 25 bookable days per year and 15 set public holidays per year.

Our public holidays are:
- Good Friday and Easter Monday
- First Monday in May
