We offer you more than you expect
While our people make a difference to our service users, we’re committed to making a difference to our people’s lives – inside and outside of work. Which is why we offer a wide range of benefits that everyone can make the most of when they join us.
We offer at least 25 days’ holiday each year. And if you join us at either our London or Thames Valley CRCs, you’ll begin with 27 days’ holiday which will increase each year to a maximum of 33 days.
We’ll automatically enrol you into our Workplace Pension scheme three months after your start date. The plan is offered by Royal London, and matches your contributions up to 6% in the first year, increasing by 1% each year to a maximum of 10%. You’ll also have the option to contribute towards a salary sacrifice pension scheme, which is an agreement to a reduction in your salary in exchange for an equivalent additional employer pension contribution. This is also known as 'SMART Pensions' and allows you to benefit from savings on your National Insurance contributions.
As long as you’re part of MTC, you and your family will have the peace of mind that comes from good life assurance cover – and ours offers four times your salary. Cover is subject to scheme rules and underlying policies, and we reserve the right to amend this offer from time to time.
Cyclescheme saves you 25 to 39% on a bike and accessories. You pay nothing upfront and the payments are taken from your salary in a tax efficient way.
The way it works is simple. You choose a bike, hire it for an agreed length of time, and then snap it up for a fraction of its original value. It's like a year-round sale, with interest free credit available in over 2,000 retailers nationwide.
Discounted gym membership with Fitness First
Once you’re a member, you’ll have access to more than 4,000 locations worldwide, including over 150 locations across the UK.
You'll benefit from high-spec fitness equipment, a friendly and supportive community environment, group workout classes, private bathrooms and free access to a dedicated member training app that's great for when you're on the go.
We’ve partnered with Health Assured, an independent provider of confidential support and professional counselling services. The programme offers confidential support services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to help you and your immediate family deal with a range of personal matters including:
- Family issues
- Family matters
- Domestic abuse
- Insurance claims
- Drug and alcohol problems
- Consumer issues
- Work or career-related issues
Season Ticket Loans
You can take advantage of a season ticket loan that will enable you to buy your season ticket and repay it from your salary in equal monthly instalments.
Refer a friend
Sometimes, the best people to help us find new talent are the people who already work here at MTC. So, we’ll reward you with up to £500 if you introduce us to someone who eventually joins us. And there's no limit to how many people you can recommend, too.
Years of Service
Our Years of Service Award recognises service and dedication to MTC after 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years.
MTC Employee recognition scheme
Our MTC employee recognition programme recognises people who stand out and make a significant contribution to us achieving our organisational goals, and driving operational excellence.
Wherever you work at MTC, you can nominate one of your colleagues or service users/young people for an award. Awards are presented at an annual awards ceremony.
