Benefits

At Certsure, we understand the importance of work-life balance, which is why we offer a hybrid work model. We proudly celebrate our employees’ contributions through our loyalty awards, honoring those who have demonstrated exceptional dedication to our organisation.

We invest in the learning and development of our employees – which is demonstrated through our dedicated 30 hours of annual continuing professional development (CPD) for every team member.

Discover the full range of benefits we offer below.

General working benefits

Annual leave

We know how important it is to take time off to relax and unwind. So, to help you achieve a healthy work/life balance, you’ll enjoy at least 25 days’ holiday a year (plus bank and public holidays). Your annual leave is pro rata if you work part time. Depending on your length of service your holiday will increase too.

Employee Assistance program

A free counselling service is available to all employees, providing a range of services including counselling, mental health support, general legal and debt support, and financial advice. 

Flexible Working

All employees have a statutory right to request flexible working. Flexible working can enable you to have a career that fits in with your commitments outside of work and can greatly improve your work life balance.

Home working

Certain roles mean that our people need to be based at home. We fully support home working for these roles and provide our people with a home office allowance and the necessary equipment/facilities to enable them to carry out their work within a home office environment. 

Hybrid working

Hybrid working supports a blend of office and remote working, and is an important part of our commitment to supporting a positive work-life balance for our people. Hybrid working offers our people the opportunity to work where they are most productive to meet the needs of the business. However, hybrid working is not suitable for all roles, and there are certain roles which can only be carried out successfully from an office environment. If your role is suitable for hybrid working, your manager will discuss this with you. 

Loyalty awards

We’re proud that so many of our people choose to stay with us for such a long time. And we celebrate this with our loyalty awards.  For those people who’ve been with us for 5 years and over, they’ll receive loyalty vouchers to spend on our Employee Discount Platform. We also give an additional day’s holiday for every 5 years worked, up to a maximum of 5 days.

Financial benefits

Bike loan

We offer an interest-free loan of up to £500 to help finance the cost of a bicycle and accessories.

It’s not something any of us likes to think about, but should you die while in service your beneficiaries will receive a lump sum payment.
