Employee benefits and wellbeing
We’re committed to cultivating a happy and healthy working environment for all our staff
We put people at the centre of everything we do.
We champion people’s wellbeing and a working culture based on our core values.
These values guide our work with colleagues, and between the secretariat and members and other partner organisations.
- Trust and openness to listen, share and learn from one another that enables us to build consensus and mutual understanding
- Transparency and mutual accountability
- Equity and respect for diverse identities, needs and perspectives
- Commitment to work together in a collaborative, inclusive and participatory manner
We provide a competitive salary and benefits package across all of our locations.
Our full time staff work 35 hours per week.
We offer a generous holiday allowance of 33 days for all staff. This will be made up of leave and public holidays which vary depending on the country you reside in. The entitlement is calculated on a pro-rata basis for part-time staff. Staff can also carry forward up to five annual leave days to the following year. Our office is normally closed between Christmas and New Year and staff are not required to use annual leave to cover this period.
We have policies in place to support family leave and pay.
We offer provision for pension to all our staff.
We offer a life assurance scheme paying four times the employee’s annual salary in the unfortunate event of death during employment.
We offer a contribution towards private healthcare for staff based in countries where a nationwide healthcare system does not exist.
Our approach to wellbeing
As well as supportive occupational sick pay, regular socials and eye care checks, we offer a range of other activities and initiatives to support and promote our staff wellbeing.
Employee assistance programme
We offer confidential wellbeing support through our EAP provider. This includes access to six counselling sessions and plenty of online resources.
In order to support and encourage a healthy work-life balance for our staff, we are happy to consider flexible working requests as part of our recruitment process.
Flexible working options are available for existing staff in line with our policy. The current policy incorporates a combination of options including hybrid working, part-time and variable start and finish times. Due to being a global organisation, most staff work remotely depending on their role and location.
We also provide time off in lieu if staff have worked significantly more than their contractual working hours.
Learning and development
We fully support and encourage the continuous learning and development of our staff to ensure everyone is fully equipped to thrive and progress in their careers.
We provide travel insurance for all staff while travelling internationally in order to cover the cost of any emergency treatment that may be necessary.
