It’s more than just a job or salary at TACT, we recognise the importance of ensuring employees remain happy and motivated at work. As well as great career opportunities, we offer a positive culture and an attractive benefits package, as well as providing a comprehensive wellbeing programme to help enhance engagement, performance and retention of staff.
As part of our drive to make TACT a great place to work, we are pleased to offer you the following range of benefits:
All staff receive 31 days annual leave each year and also the eight recognised public holidays (in England) [pro rata if part time]. For every five years continuous service (five full holiday years need to be completed – January to December), staff will receive one day’s extra leave per annum, providing that the maximum will be 35 days leave in total, irrespective of length of service.
If part of your job requires you to travel, you will be able to claim a mileage allowance, subject to certain limits, or public transport costs. You will also be able to claim an allowance per mile if you use your bike for business travel.
To provide flexibility around working hours it is possible for staff to work a nine day fortnight, in agreement with your line manager. This is achieved by working the extra seven hours into the nine working days. Staff are not encouraged to work through their lunch break in order to build up time. This arrangement is available to staff that work 21 hours or more per week.
TACT provides life cover which will pay a lump sum of £137,500 to your nominated beneficiaries in the event of your death.
TACT will contribute towards the cost of eye tests. You may also be eligible for a voucher towards the cost of glasses.
TACT offer a non-contributory Employee Assistance Programme. You can speak to a qualified adviser on any topic that’s bothering you; work, family crises, personal life, illness, managing money, retirement issues and personal crises. You have access to friendly, unbiased, confidential advice whenever you need it. The service is completely free, independent and available to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The service is also available to family members living in the same household.
TACT provides a number of generous family friendly policies that provide benefits that exceed the statutory requirements. These include:
Time off for dependants
Flexible working / working from home
This is available to all permanent full time and part time employees aged 18 or above who join the company prior to their 63rd birthday, once they have completed two years service, subject to satisfying the terms and conditions of the policy.
Group Income Protection Insurance is a benefit which provides an income after 13 weeks’ continued absence from work due to accident or illness, subject to acceptance of a claim.
The income is equivalent to 75% of basic salary (including London Weighting where applicable) less an amount equal to State Invalidity Benefit. The income during a qualifying claim will be paid for a maximum of 24 monthly payments or until the employee is able to return to work, until they reach retirement age of 65 or until death – which ever occurs first.
