This effectively gives you a 3% boost in pay and gives you a stake in the company. The pension plan is very competitive with large amounts being paid in by the company when you make salary sacrifices. Private medical care is standard for each member and there are a range of other perks that can be purchased for a nominal rate such as dental, family medical care, critical illness cover etc. There is also a member discount scheme where you can get cashback from a large range of shops and service providers."
