At Cats Protection, your wellbeing is as important to us as it is to you. As a movement of people championing the welfare of cats, making sure we look after the welfare of our people, and ensuring they are protected and cared for, is equally important.
Our benefits are here to support you and your family and to show our appreciation for the work you do. They enable you to lead the life you want and protect what’s important to you.
Taking time away from work is important for our good mental health and wellbeing. Holiday entitlement starts at 25 days (plus bank holidays) increasing to 30 days maximum with length of service (pro-rated based on hours of work).
Our private healthcare scheme is with our chosen partner, Bupa. We provide private healthcare to give peace of mind that most healthcare needs will be met at a time when they are needed.
Featuring discounts from some of the UK’s biggest names, this offers benefits from big brand savings all year long. And it’s completely free to join – whether a member of Bupa or not.
We know there’ll be times when you can’t come to work because you’re ill. We want to support and help you come back to work as soon as you can. We’ll pay up to eight weeks’ sick pay in any year if you qualify.
We offer a choice of cash plans through two providers: Medicash and Health Shield. You have the option to join either or both.
Our Employee Assistance Programme is provided through our chosen partner Health Assured and provides a source of confidential and independent advice to help you deal with life’s ups and downs. A free 24-hour helpline is available to everyone to help deal with both personal and professional problems.
We’re registered with Specsavers Corporate Eye Care Scheme. If you work in front of a screen for more than three hours a day each week, you are eligible for a free display screen equipment (DSE) eye care voucher.
The eye care voucher entitles you to a free eye examination and if needed, a free pair of single vision prescription lens glasses.
We want to help you make plans and feel secure about the future. You’ll join our defined contribution pension scheme, and we’ll pay contributions into your fund depending on the amount you choose to pay in.
Pension salary exchange (PSE) is a way of making pension contributions which, for most employees, saves you money compared to standard pension contributions arrangements. This is because you could pay fewer National Insurance contributions through PSE.
We know that money worries can be a cause of stress so, to help you take control of your financial health we offer a range of benefits via Salary Finance. These include affordable loans repaid through salary; advanced earned pay; simple savings; government-backed help to save scheme and free financial education.
Life can be unpredictable. Cats Protection offers all employees death-in-service life assurance giving you and your loved ones peace of mind. In the event of your death, a lump sum will be paid to your chosen dependants so that financial commitments you might have can be taken care of when you’re not around.
You can get 20% off your Petplan pet insurance as a Cats Protection employee.
