Role Specific Benefits...

The Employment Policy page, Careers page and the Salaries page cover key elements of eligibility and remuneration. They don't however highlight the benefits that are offered to every member of staff and all new vacancies will be subject to these. Ultimately it is your offer letter of employment, subsequent contract and Employee Handbook that counts and we reserve the right to alter these as we see fit without notice here.

It is the industrial norm to perhaps skew benefits to the Board members, senior executives and sales resources and dilute these progressively (some aggressively) to all other staff to the bare minimum for those on the lower bands.

We take a dim view of this as in an organisation those roles in the lower bands are just as important in many respects as those other organisations wish to highly reward. We offer the same core benefits to ALL staff irrespective of grade. We believe in rewarding all highly for success and only success. The core belief is that we all benefit from the success not just a select few.

Free Eye Test - habitual users of VDUs, data tablets and lasers will receive free eye tests in accord with our Company Handbook. All other staff may have such and will be offered at annual on-site health reviews. Defective Colour Vision is compassionately managed on a risk basis and will not be a barrier to employment - certain aerospace 'licensed' roles preclude such; however we have an inclusive policy of employment whilst meeting our legal obligations to Aerospace and Defence.

Relocation Package - discretionary package to help relocate you and if applicable your family to our part of the UK. This will be advised and discussed as part of the selection process. It will be a mix of paid-for expenses, lump sum(s) and bridging advances of salary over an extended time-frame (for example five years), the final agreed package will be compliant with the latest HM Revenue & Customs guidelines and reporting requirements. 

OHS - we value health and wellbeing in all our staff and as such we will offer all staff the ability to sign up to and contribute towards a private health plan for themselves and their immediate family. Staff may use the gym on a first-come first-served basis and likewise the pool when it is set for the shallow use position (which should be most non-office hours). Annual free medicals will be undertaken by the on-site medical team along with eye testing as previously covered.

Company Cars - we aren't keen! That said we offer an opt in - opt out scheme for all staff and HR/Commercial Office can furnish more details on this. Some companies miss that they have a duty of care - even on opt out and we manage these risks and turn that around into a positive programme of training and driver support - for all staff. All 'work' drivers will receive further training and regular reviews, all other 'drivers' will receive training to help reduce their travel risks, plan journeys well and enjoy driving to its full. All staff will have optional training for performance, snow and skid pan where (and when) possible. All staff will be offered Econon Driving Care training to reduce wear, improve your safety and reduce fuel costs to name a few of its benefits.

Tools - all science/technical grades (including Board members) get a corporate extensive toolkit in roller cabinets, all other grades a data-tablet or suitable high-end needs for their role. Additionally PPE will be provided as are necessary to the role. Everyone in the company receives a set of Maglites, Car Winter Safety Kit, Car Emergency & First Aid KitHolts Tyre Weld [for emergency use only) and all engineers/technicians a Swiss Army Multi-tool knife [incl guidelines against generally carrying such outside of site]. The middle three are swapped for Motorbike Equivalents as appropriate.

Corporate Clothing - all grades will receive a corporate fleece with the company name and logo embroidered on it. Then as necessary to your role you will receive also that which is applicable - shirts, trousers or skirts, boots, webbing, clean room suits, clogs and masks, overcoats, aprons, fleece(s), high quality RAB cold weather protection and all weathers high quality RAB external clothing. These will be marked with the company name and logo. ID badges and lanyards will also be issued and changed periodically. For those who really can't wear feather, we will select alternatives including looking at Mammut.

Advancement - surely not a benefit! Well we believe so; we have seen so many companies tie themselves in knots promoting people into roles in recognition for achievement and then finding the employee is far from doing what they are really good at. With that in mind we promote in post and advancement from one salary band to another 'in post' is possible and is a key part of our appraisal and advancement process. As are career progression into new areas, roles and responsibilities within the company.
