We provide a range of benefits to our employees including generous pay and leave benefits, flexible working hours and interest free season ticket loans. Some of these are detailed below:
We offer generous annual leave, which is based on employee’s salary point and length of service and will be between 27 to 33 days. After completing 5 years service, an employee becomes entitled to additional 5 days leave.
Season Ticket Loan
Interest free loans are available for public transport season tickets, repayable in ten equal monthly installments.
Employee Assistance Programme (Carefirst)
As a Hackney Homes employee you will have access 24/7 to a free employee helpline so you can speak to professionals/counsellors for advice about your personal, financial and emotional issues.
We offer a final salary pension scheme. On joining Hackney Homes you will be entitled to become a member of the Local Government Pension scheme. Your contribution to the pension scheme equates to 6% of your pay, though tax relief is applicable.
Training & Career Development
Hackney Homes provides Training and Development opportunities for all levels of staff, covering training for work specific topics, general management courses and self developmental courses. Our aim is to develop staff in order to achieve our aims and objectives.
Work Life Balance
Hackney Homes fully supports Work-Life Balance and as such we provide a range of generous pay and leave benefits, including flexible working hours, maternity, adoption and paternity provisions, homeworking and job share schemes, sabbatical leave, special leave, and the right to request flexible working where staff have children aged under 6 years old or have caring responsibilities for relatives.
The Staff Excellence Awards Scheme recognises and rewards excellent achievements which are above and beyond the employee’s normal job remit. The awards encourages colleagues to nominate one another and the winners (individuals and teams) arepresented with prizes at the annual Staff Conference.
