We're a family friendly employer

We understand that becoming a parent, growing your family or looking after those who mean the most to you, can be life changing. That's why we’re proud to provide policies that fit around your family, whenever you might need it.

Here you’ll be able to see an overview of each of our policies, so you don’t have to worry about asking these questions during the recruitment process.

Regardless of how long you've worked for us you can take up to 52 weeks maternity or adoption leave.

If you have been with us for a year, at least 15 weeks before the child's arrival date, you will receive full pay for the first 46 weeks.

So when you take into account the annual leave and bank holidays that would be accrued – that means that anyone impacted can take a whole year off on full pay if they choose to. This is paid on the basis that you are returning to employment after.

During your time off we would love you to take advantage of up to 10 paid keeping in touch days with your team and line manager. This is a great way to stay connected and know what's happening in the business.

As with maternity and adoption, if you've been with us for a year, at least 15 weeks before the child arrives, you will receive 2 weeks paternity leave paid at full pay.

We are flexible with moving the dates you need as we know babies sometimes have their own timeline.

If you've not quite reached a year but have been working with us for 26 weeks, 15 weeks before the child arrives we'll arrange for you to take 2 weeks paternity leave which will be paid at the statutory rate.

Shared parental leave allows you to share the caring responsibilities of your child during the first year.

Providing you meet the qualifying conditions set out by the Government, you can share up to 50 weeks shared parental leave paid at the statutory rate.

Time off may be paid or unpaid and this will will be agreed with your line manager.

Reasonable time off for dependants could be paid or unpaid depending on the circumstances and will be agreed with your line manager.

However we understand that these times are difficult therefore your line manager has the discretion to increase paid leave.
