We believe our total benefits package is amongst the best in the sector.
We offer a very competitive salary, including London weighting where applicable, and excellent annual leave benefits.
In addition, we offer access to a range of benefits including:
Employees are automatically enrolled into a Local Government Pension Scheme through the West Yorkshire Pension Fund (WYPF). Employee contribution rates vary from 5.5% to 12.5% of salary depending on your earnings. If you chose to join the scheme we will make an additional 15.8% employer contribution.
Our Health and Wellbeing Plan provides access to eye and dental care, physiotherapy, discounted gym membership, annual health checks, consultations and diagnostic tests. This can also be upgraded to include cover for your partner and/or any children you are responsible for.

We currently reimburse HCPC registration fee costs for all social work practitioners, which will be paid directly into your first payslip.
If you are a parent and have parental responsibility for a child living with you aged up to 15 (16 if your child has a disability) you could make savings on childcare costs by using our childcare voucher scheme.
This operates on a salary sacrifice basis, enabling you to receive tax relief on your childcare costs.
Staff can access a Cycle to Work scheme to save between 32%-42% on the costs of a bike and accessories, by benefiting from tax savings through salary sacrifice.
We offer a range of discounts for many businesses across the UK. These include Dining Discounts Societies, reductions on Vodafone contracts, rates at Hilton Hotels and savings at supermarkets, high street retailers and online stores.
All employees have access to our Employee Assistance Programme, providing independent, free and completely confidential telephone advice and support 24/7. This also covers up to eight face to face counselling sessions, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
We provide the opportunity of making charitable donations each month directly through salary, allowing employees to benefit from tax savings. They can choose to give any amount as either a one off payment, or a regular debit from salary, which can be cancelled at any time.
