We care for our staff

In return for the hard work our colleagues put in, we offer a wide range of benefits, pension options, development opportunities – and that’s in addition to modern offices with free parking, club rooms, kitchen facilities and free refreshments throughout the day!

  • Health benefits

    When you’re doing well, so are we, so we offer a range of health and wellbeing initiatives for you to be a part of.

    We offer a Healthshield health plan which covers a large range of benefits including dental, optical & health & wellbeing. There are 4 levels of cover including the option to increase employee benefits, and add partners and dependents. All claims are paid promptly & direct to your bank account.

    In addition, the 'mywellness' benefit through Healthshield includes services such as virtual GP surgery, private prescriptions, 24/7 counselling and support helpline, face to face counselling and online assessments.

    You’ll also have access to high street discounts, 2-for-1 cinema tickets, cashback on your shopping, travel, restaurants and much more.


  • Pension scheme

    Your future is important to us too, so we give new colleagues access to the National Employment Saving Plan Scheme which starts at 3% employee contribution & 6% employer contribution but can be increased up to 7% employee contribution & 10% employer contribution.

  • Training & development

    We want to support your ambitions, so we will work with you to help you develop in any area you identify, or help you to identify areas where you might want to gain more experience. We’ll offer you training and development throughout your employment – including the opportunity to gain professional qualifications of varying levels to support your continuous learning and improvement. 


  • Your say

    Your views matter. Our employees have a huge say at all levels of the organisation; we listen to all feedback and use it to help to shape how we deliver services and how we operate internally and externally.

    We offer colleagues the opportunity to be involved in shaping the direction of the Trust through membership of corporate groups, project groups that shape services, regular surveys and a variety of other methods to have your say. 

  • Childcare & Cycle2Work schemes

    As a Southway Housing Trust colleague, you’ll have access to our childcare voucher and Cycle2Work schemes that provide great discounts to assist you with a great work-life balance.
