Rewards and Benefits





Core Benefits

UK SBS values all of its employees and offers the following core benefits to help ensure your experience working for us is the best it can be.

Annual leave

UK SBS offers a generous annual leave entitlement of 28 days per annum. This rises by one day after completion of a full year of service, increasing up to a maximum of 30 days.

Pension scheme

We ensure the financial security of our employees by offering the Research Councils Pension Scheme (RCPS) to all staff. This is a 'by-analogy' scheme to the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (PCSPS), so follows the same rules. Visit the Joining the scheme page for details.

Season ticket purchase

If you require financial assistance to purchase a season ticket for travel between home and work, you may be granted an advance of salary. This is a beneficial loan and income tax will later be deducted from your gross pay, ignoring the advance and the deduction in respect of the advance.

Training and development

We offer training and development courses to help you become the best you can be. Whether you want to develop your communication skills, improve your time management or brush up on an area of knowledge, we aim to further the personal and professional development of our employees.
