Why Work With Us?



We offer highly competitive salaries and regularly review them so they reflect employees’ contribution and achievements.



We know having time off to relax is important, so at the Russell Group you will start on 28 days annual leave (this includes 4 bank holidays to be taken over the Christmas and New Year Period) which will rise by one day per year after 5 years' service, to a maximum of 33 days after 9 years' service.

Please note that holiday entitlement is pro rata’d if you work less than 5 days per week.


Learning & Development

It is important for our employees to feel motivated and have opportunities to make an impact. We therefore offer a variety of development opportunities, including on the job training and external training.



We know it's important to plan for the future. We have a fantastic pension scheme that all our colleagues can join. Together with a generous company contribution, employee contributions are invested to help employees save for their future.  The pension scheme operates on an auto enrolment basis. This means, provided employees meet certain requirements, employees will be automatically enrolled into the pension scheme to help them save for retirement.
