Our people are important to us. We want to reward hard work and commitment which is why we offer a range of benefits designed to attract, retain and inspire.
Pay and pension
Arden & GEM offers all staff a salary that matches their ability and responsibilities, with an annual opportunity for pay progression through training and development. We adhere to the national pay system for the NHS — Agenda for Change — which is for all directly employed staff except doctors and the most senior managers.
All staff automatically become members of the NHS pension plan which is one of the most generous and comprehensive in the UK. We also provide financial benefits to employees and their families in the event of permanent disability or death in service.
Holiday entitlement and work-life balance
You will receive at least 27 days holiday entitlement (increasing to 29 days after five years and 33 days after 10 years of service), in addition to bank holidays. We also provide the option of buying or selling annual leave.
We want everyone at Arden & GEM to have a healthy work-life balance and have a range of initiative in place to support this including childcare vouchers, enhanced schemes for maternity and paternity leave and several other family-friendly policies.
Learning and development
We continually invest in our people by offering a wide range of training programmes. From our dedicated e-learning system to external professional development opportunities and apprenticeships, we are committed to helping you reach your career aspirations.
Offers and discounts
We provide organisation-specific offers such as ‘Theatre Club’ membership, where you can take advantage of discounted theatre tickets and packages, as well as access to NHS-wide schemes such as vehicle leasing, Blue Light Card membership and Health Service Discounts.
Health and wellbeing
Our Occupational Health service provides our people with:
• Health checks and screenings
• Flu vaccinations
• Talking services
• Ill-health retirements.
While our Employee Assistance Programme is a confidential support service, providing practical information, legal advice and professional counselling that can help you cope with a variety of personal, family or workplace issues.
You can find all of our permanent and fixed term roles advertised on NHS Jobs.
