There are huge benefits to working with us…

Annual Leave 35-38 days
When you join us you will receive 35 days of annual leave which rises to 38 days after 5 years. Having time off is important to recharge and have some time with family, friends or just to be on your own.
Wellbeing Days
In addition to annual leave, all frontline staff have an additional two days leave to use as they wish, taking time off to relax, do some volunteering work, enjoy their birthday and spend time with the family – the key is to do something that makes you happy. No dentist appointments!
Based on a full time support worker, you pay 4% of your annual salary into your pension, as do SCS. This means that 8% is paid into your pension on an annual basis, so starting out as a Support Worker on £20,819 your pension contribution would be totalling a minimum of £1,665.
Tax-Free Childcare
Designed so that for every 80p you put into your Tax-Free Childcare account, the state will add 20p. The scheme gives you basic-rate tax back on your childcare bill meaning you could save up to £2,000 a year.
Cycle to Work Scheme
Cycling is great for your mental and physical health, it’s also good for the environment and is cheaper than the bus. Our Cycle Scheme is designed to help you buy a bike and equipment and pay in easy monthly payments.
Cycle Travel
We want to encourage and support cycling within and outside Simon Community Scotland, so to help our environment, improve our health and clean our air we will pay you 20p per mile to cycle to work, and back again of course!
Counselling Service
We provide access to six free face to face or online counselling for staff. It is completely confidential and is provided by an external agency. The average cost of 6 counselling sessions means that you have access to £360 of mental health support, and you will get access within a week.
Occupational Health
We have an excellent Occupational Health service that can provide you with a very personal and detailed consultation for up to an hour, considerably more than your GP can provide. The cost to Simon Community is £220, the cost to you, none.
After 5 years, you will receive 6 months full pay and 6 months half pay for sickness.
Hospital Saturday Fund
If you pay a minimum of £5 per month, you are eligible for health benefits worth £725 plus £7,500 health insurance cover.
Life Insurance
You will be automatically covered by our life insurance plan which is 5 times your salary. You have complete control over where and to whom you want the money paid upon your death. Starting off as a Support Worker would give you £109,300 life cover.

You and your friend could both receive £500.
