Benefits of working for us Here are some of the benefits of working for Pact. Learning and development We offer comprehensive induction training, as well as a variety of in-house training and learning opportunities through peer support groups, shadowing and buddying. We also hold Pact's annual Big Get Together, which brings together colleagues from across the country to share learn, share skills and have fun. Annual leave We offer 30 days' annual leave per annum plus recognised bank and public holidays. If you work part-time your annual leave will be pro rata'd according to the hours you work. Family Friendly We are a family friendly employer, with a third of our staff working part time hours. We offer generous family friendly benefits such as enhanced maternity and paternity pay, and paid special leave for emergencies to support our people with caring responsibilities. Living Wage employer We always seek to pay at least the Living Wage, which is an independently set, voluntary hourly rate of pay. Pension We operate a standard auto-enrolment pension with Pact making contributions to your personal pension plan. Childcare voucher scheme Childcare vouchers offer tax savings and can be used as full or part payment for a range of childcare, including day nursery, nursery school, childminder, crèche, preschool and holiday clubs for children up to 15 years old. Employee assistance programme Pact offers also employees access to a free, independent and confidential counselling and advice service covering subjects such as financial advice, family issues and consumer rights. This can be accessed over the phone, email or internet, and where appropriate, employees can access face to face counselling. Interest free season ticket loan We offer an interest free loan for annual season tickets for travelling to work after successful completion of the probationary period. Flexi-time Our flexi scheme has been developed to encourage a good work-life balance and it offers employees a degree of flexibility in their start and finish times depending on the role, and the opportunity to take time off in lieu. Cycle to Work The Cycle to Work programme delivered through Cycle Scheme takes advantage of the Government's Green Transport Plan. The scheme promotes cycling as a more attractive way of commuting to work by enabling employees to benefit from tax incentives.
