Annual Leave Purchase Scheme

As part of our commitment to offering you a great place to work, we are giving you a chance to purchase additional annual leave.

The staff survey, carried out in early 2016, indicated that 67% of our staff feel they have a good work life balance, and whilst this is positive we are keen to improve on this.

We recognise that that there may be times when some members of staff may wish to take more than the standard contractual entitlement of annual leave. To enable this we are offering staff the opportunity to purchase additional annual leave on top of their existing entitlement through a salary sacrifice scheme.

Buying annual leave back in this way means that you will benefit from exemption from tax and NI on the cost of the additional days.

Subject to meeting the eligibility criteria, the Annual Leave Purchase Scheme (ALPS) provides the opportunity for staff to purchase up to an additional 10 days leave (pro rata for part-time staff).

The scheme is part of the wider package of HR benefits which can be viewed here. For more information about the annual leave purchase scheme, please take a look at our HR pages.
