At Swale Heating, we offer more than just your standard benefits package you have probably seen on every business career page. We aim to provide a healthy work-life balance for all of our employees. We want everyone in our team to succeed, and we provide them with everything they need to do so. We pride ourselves on offering equal opportunities of progression and development for all.
Ensuring our team is healthy, both physically and mentally, is a key focus for us. We offer affordable private healthcare to all our employees, as well as access to a free wellbeing app, Headspace, which you can download on your smart device.
In addition, we have a Cycle2Work scheme to assist with physical health and to encourage employees to choose more eco friendly ways of travel where possible. Alongside the Cycle2Work scheme, we have the MySwale employee benefits platform, providing an array of shopping, entertainment, leisure and travel discount deals, cashback rewards, discounted gym membership and independent advice and support via our Employee Assistance Programme.
Keeping customers safe and warm is an important part of our brand identity. Another part is our desire to protect communities. Our partnership with Demelza Hospice Care for Children is a special example of how we do this. Demelza, who are a charity in the South East of the UK, provide unrivalled care and support for seriously ill babies, children, young people and their families, across East Sussex, Kent and South East London.
Being involved and offering support within our local community is very important to us, and we would like that experience to be available throughout our team. We understand that everyone faces their own challenges and experiences in life and may in turn have charities, which are close to their hearts. Therefore, we offer every member of the team two paid days to volunteer for a charity of their choice.
At Swale Heating, we try our utmost to ensure we offer an attractive, market leading basic salary for all of our positions and we also offer the following perks:
- Purchase/ sell leave - you can buy or sell up to 5 days leave annually to suit your holiday planning requirements
- Pension scheme - all team members can join our attractive pension plan after their first month of employment
- Annual leave - starts at 20 days per annum, increasing to 25 over the first 5 years of service
- Training – every employee receives training related to their role and to help them increase their skill set. This provides a solid platform for progression and promotion through the business
In addition to the above benefits to promote a healthy work environment, we offer a range of working hours depending on roles. We try to offer flexible working hours where applicable and some roles are available on a part time basis.
