We believe in looking after the people who work with us as we're proud of what we do; we value the contribution of all our staff who contribute to our success as an organisation. With exceptional welfare and support on offer, we'll do all we can to help you be your best - both in and out of work. We pride ourselves on our flexible working patterns and the wide range of health and support services available.
Our light and airy modern office environment is set in its own extensive, picturesque grounds with a rich local history. It comes with a huge chill-out zone offering a comfortable area where staff can meet and relax; a quiet space for reflection and meditation; and a library full of resources. It’s the ideal setting to support well-being at work and offers a space to suit everyone’s needs.
Full-time staff work 35 hours a week with one hour daily for lunch; normal office hours are 09:15 – 17:15 but we can be flexible to suit your needs.
We are proud to be a learning organisation, focused on improving performance and helping our staff be the best that they can. We support ongoing learning and development, offering a range of opportunities to help you grow in your current role and beyond.
When you join us you will receive a tailored induction programme, adapted for your specific role. We will continue to support your career and development using a blending learning approach that may include workshops, coaching, seminars and eLearning.
We also offer opportunities for secondments, support for professional qualifications and access to an internal coach.
We don’t want you to miss out on our pension scheme so whether you're a new permanent member of staff or on a long-term or a fixed-term contract, you’ll become a member of the NFER Retirement Savings Plan from day one.
This is a defined contribution, occupational pension scheme with a salary exchange arrangement as the mechanism for paying pension contributions.
You’ll be entitled to support for the cost of eye examinations and for the cost of spectacles where these are required specifically for work with display screen equipment. You’ll also be eligible to be considered for a series of free physiotherapy treatments with a local provider where an injury/complaint is directly affecting your ability to carry out your everyday work.
There is plenty of free parking available in our spacious leafy grounds and bike shelters are provided for those who want to cycle to work.
Season ticket loans are available to staff.
