At Nominet, we’re a company that balances business with social conscience – which means we’re just as committed to helping you stay healthy and happy as we are to helping you develop a long lasting and successful career.
That’s why we’ve created a brilliant flexible benefits offering that allows each of our people to make an informed choice about the benefits that work for them. We regularly review our packages to make sure they are in line with the market and the needs of the business.
Doing the right thing as an employer means focusing on healthy lifestyles as well as healthy careers. At Nominet, we've got that covered with a wide range of benefits that will help you take a proactive approach to maintaining and improving your health.
We offer a Group Personal Pension (GPP) that meets the requirements of the government’s auto enrolment scheme. This pension enables our people to save in a tax efficient environment and to give the utmost flexibility, portability and control over retirement savings. We match our people’s personal contribution of between 1% and 5% of basic monthly salary into the company’s GPP, with higher contributions for senior roles.
To help our people get back to full health quickly we provide you a private medical scheme.
We all experience big life events at one time or another. And whether they’re good or bad, happy or sad, being prepared can make all the difference. Our professional help, advice and counselling is there to help, and you or anyone else in your household can take advantage by phone or online, 24 hours per day 7 days per week.
If you die while employed by us, we’ll arrange to pay life assurance of 4x your base salary to a nominated person.
If you’re a keen cyclist, or if you’d like to become one, you can get a bike and accessories worth up to £1000 through our cycle to work scheme for you to use to travel to work and back. It works as a salary sacrifice style benefit which means you could save quite a bit on the cost of your gear. Hire periods generally last from 12-18 months after which you’ll be able to choose from a range of ownership options.
Finally, we have lots of close links with a number of wellbeing services which not only help if you’re poorly, but can also help you stay healthy, too. Services include flu vaccinations and health screenings.
Getting that work/life balance just right can be tricky - and even more so when you have kids. Looking after your family is just as important to us as it is to you, which is why we’re committed to helping you find a way to make it work.
Our maternity and paternity policies both offer more than statutory requirements, and we’re always reviewing them to make sure they offer as much support as possible.
Our people can purchase childcare vouchers directly from their monthly pay through a salary sacrifice scheme. Childcare vouchers can be used to pay for all types of registered childcare, including holiday clubs, before and after school clubs, childminders, nannies, nurseries and play schemes.
We’re always happy to discuss how flexible working might help you, and we’re also pretty clued up about how technology can allow you to work from home if necessary.
As much as we love being at work, we all need a holiday from time to time - and our time off benefits add plenty of choice and flexibility in to the mix.
With 25 days’ paid holiday plus 8 statutory Bank Holidays in England, you should have no problem getting your work/life/leisure balance just right.
You can exchange up to 5 days of your holiday as a cash payment at the end of each holiday year if you haven’t used them – or you can carry over 5 days into the next holiday year.
If you’ve been with us for more than 5 years, you can apply for up to 3 months’ unpaid leave once in every subsequent 5 year period. Sabbaticals are ideal for travelling, for doing voluntary work, or for beefing up your education – but you do need to ask your manager to approve it first.
We know that all kinds of things can happen unexpectedly – and your manager will support all reasonable requests for time off to deal with family or other emergencies.
At Minerva House, we’ve created a fantastic working environment where you really do have everything you need to give your best - and build a great career.
You can help yourself to a selection of free drinks while you’re at work and stay on top of your 5-a-day with a choice of fresh fruit.
We match all charitable donations, and work closely with the Charity Action Group to organise fun and engaging events that raise money for our chosen charity.
Each year, our social committee sets aside £275 per person to cover the cost of a wide range of events. It’s our way of showing all our people and their partners and families how much they mean to us.
Whatever your career ambitions or aspirations, we have a budget in place to help you develop your skills – and to give you even more reasons for loving work at Nominet.
Our great location on the Science Park means you can also take advantage of a wide range of discounted rates and special offers, such as dry cleaning services, shoe repairs and restaurant facilities.
