We believe in looking after our own. Happy, healthy people make for a happier, healthier business. So we’ve given a lot of thought to how we can make our benefits work for everyone. Some things come as standard; others you can pick and choose. We’re all different, so your needs will be too.
Everyone gets 25 days’ paid holiday for some rest and relaxation and the opportunity to buy or sell up to 5 days. We also offer an interest-free travel loan, as well as Life Assurance and Accidental Death Insurance. If a long-term disability leaves you unable to work, we’ll protect up to 50% of your salary. And because we want you to make the most of your potential, we’ll also pay 100% of your tuition costs for a wide range of courses through our Educational Assistance Programme.
We’ve invested in looking after your health and wellbeing too. There’s an onsite gym and health facility at our Nottingham office, fully equipped with cardio and resistance machines, as well as weights, classes and treatment rooms. Private Medical Insurance, sick pay and a Family Assistance Programme providing a 24-hour counselling service are also included in The Core, not to mention flexible working and regular health initiatives.
We’re all different. And we think your benefits package should reflect this. You can choose to buy or sell up to five days of your holiday entitlement. Everyone is enrolled in our pensions plan but you can choose to increase your contributions which we’ll match, up to a maximum of 5% of your salary. Our Childcare Vouchers, Cycle-to-Work Scheme and Dental Insurance are all available too and offer significant savings, as well as making life that little bit easier.
Babylon is designed to give you, and your nearest and dearest, peace of mind. This online health service will be part of your Private Medical Insurance (PMI).

You can get answers to your medical questions, request a video GP appointment or arrange for a prescription to be emailed to a pharmacy of your choice for collection later. Simple.
Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” This is our kind of aphorism. We believe you know best when it comes to your own development. Seek out the opportunities that are right for you and you’ll find us a very supportive partner. We also think you learn better by doing. So expect to get involved in projects rather than sit in a classroom.
We work hard. We work often – and we love every minute. Talent comes in lots of different forms. Fortunately, so does what we do here. It takes so much and so many to make our business work. So there’s bound to be a discipline to suit everyone. Come in and take a look around.Our jobs
