There are a huge number of staff benefits you can access as an employee of Shared Lives Plus. We recently carried out a benchmarking exercise through one of our charity partners and are pleased to say we came out in the top two in our sector! All employees benefit from a generous leave allowance, company pension scheme (with employer contributions), online discounts and deals, even a day off on your birthday! But this is just the beginning – here is a full list of all our staff perks.
We’ll continue to review our staff benefits to make sure we’re providing the most positive and rewarding place to work for all our team.
