New members of staff usually join at the advertised salary of their role. For roles within our pay structure there is a salary increase on the first anniversary of their appointment.


Staff are enrolled into a Civil Service pension scheme (auto enrolment).

We are an independent body, meaning that our staff are not civil servants. However, if you’re joining from the Civil Service, you will be able to remain in the Civil Service pension scheme and transfer with a continuous pensionable service record.


We offer a variety of employee benefits, including:

  • Beneden health care services
  • interest free season ticket loan
  • cycle to work scheme
  • an employee assistance programme
  • flu vaccinations
  • eye test vouchers
  • development opportunities

Holiday and flexible working

Annual leave starts at 27.5 days plus bank holidays, rising with length of service to 30 days.

We operate a flexible working hours scheme, meaning you can often work hours which suit you. Full time working is 36 hours per week.

Some of our roles may be available as a job share. If you would like to ask about this, contact our HR team.
