Benefits

We know that working here is more than just a job title. You will be surrounded by amazing people driven by creating social change for children and families. Our benefits are a way of recognising employees for the important work they all do. 

We regularly review and improve them, but here’s a brief overview of the benefits we offer – the majority of which are available from day one. If you’d like more information on any of them, just ask! 

 

Flexible working

We want you to be able to work in a way that makes it easy to do your best work! 
  • We value the opportunity to come together regularly, so no roles are completely remote but you can work from home as often as you need.
  • We provide you with equipment to work comfortably from any location.
  • If you do want to travel to the office, we offer interest free cycle and season ticket loan schemes.   
  • If you can’t get to the office until 10am, or want to leave early that’s fine you can start or end your day around our core hours of 10.00am to 4.00pm.

Health and wellbeing

We want to help you prioritise your own health and wellbeing, and feel supported if something happens that impacts you being your best self.
  • Our employee support programme offers a 24/7 confidential advice line for health, legal and bereavement support (and more).
  • We have paid sick leave options based on service.
  • You can take up to five days compassionate leave.

Pay and pension

Transparency is important to us so we’re clear about the salary and benefits for all roles in our job packs.

Leave and Holidays

We know that taking a break from work is important – we have a generous holiday allowance with the option to buy more.
  • You get 25 days annual leave + bank holidays.
  • After two years with us, annual leave increases by one day each year to a maximum of 30 days.
  • Our offices all close between 25 December to 1 January so everyone gets an additional three days’ leave.
  • You have the option to buy or sell up to five days annual leave a year. 
  • After three years with us, you can take a sabbatical of up to six months.
  •  

Family

If you have a family, caring responsibilities or are thinking about starting a family, it’s important that work works for you. As a charity centred around children and families this is particularly important to us!

  • In addition to parental leave policies, you have 5 days emergency dependency leave. 

Community

There are lots of opportunities to connect with other people at Frontline as we know that our people are one of the many reasons it’s so great to work here.
  • Once a year we have an overnight all employee away day. 
  • We have seven employee resource groups; a mix of affinity and working groups helping to make Frontline an inclusive place to work for all employees. 
  • You can also take up to three volunteering days a year to support mission aligned organisations that are important to you. 
  • When you start you will be matched with a buddy outside of your team to support you in your first six months.
