Benefits

Full-time UK employees are entitled to 25 days of annual leave plus the eight public holidays. PEI offers all permanent employees (ie employees who have successfully passed their probation period), an option to flex their holidays up or down by three days to suit their needs. Please note, this is not about selling back unused allowance for the current year, but rather planning for the year ahead.

Pension

PEI considers it is important to encourage people to save for their retirement. PEI partners with Standard Life to offer you a company pension scheme for which you will become eligible once you have successfully passed your probation period. The plan is co-funded by the company (PEI contribution of equivalent of 4.5 per cent of salary) and a contribution from you of 4.5 per cent.

Private medical insurance

Upon the successful completion of your probation period, you will be eligible to join the PEI Private Medical Insurance via BUPA. This is a free benefit to you, but it is taxable. More information will be available on the scheme details during employment.

Salary sacrifice schemes

Upon the successful completion of your probation period, you will be eligible to benefit from other salary sacrifice schemes, such as a season ticket loan and a Cycle to Work scheme.

Parental leave

PEI offers a tenure-based enhanced parental leave policy for all UK based employees. More information on this scheme can be obtained from the HR team.

Learning and development opportunities

PEI takes a bespoke approach to learning and development opportunities. We believe that everyone's needs are different but are very happy to review your ambitions and development areas with you on an individual basis.
