Benefits & Rewards

At Future we believe in looking after you. Here’s a list of what we offer in the way of holiday, training and much more!


We offer 20 days’ holiday per annum which, with your Line Manager’s prior approval, can be taken when you like.  Holiday entitlement will increase by one day per year of service to a maximum of 25 days after 5 years service. Added to this, you are given three days off for Christmas, to give everyone a well-earned break.

Company Pension Scheme

The Company follows the Government’s automatic enrolment pension legislation and will make monthly contributions in line with the Government’s statutory requirements.

Life Assurance

Upon joining Future, you will be eligible for 2x your basic salary Life Assurance cover.

Travel Season Ticket Loan

Once you have successfully completed your probationary period, you will be eligible for an interest-free season ticket loan for travel and/or parking.

Dental Plan

We offer a optional Dental Plan scheme at competitive rates for everyday dental expenses.

Healthcare Scheme

We offer an optional private Healthcare Scheme at competitive rates, which you are eligible to join upon commencement of your employment with the Company, or at the scheme renewal date of March each year. You also have the opportunity to include a spouse/partner and/or children for an additional cost.

Sickness Pay

We offer 20 days’ full pay sickness absence on a rolling 12-month basis, which includes an element of statutory sick pay (SSP). Part-time employees will receive the same amount of full pay sickness absence on a rolling 12-month basis, pro-rata’d to the number of contractual hours/days they work.


We know that you are keen to keep your skills sharp and your career moving. That is why we provide fantastic in-house and external training programmes across all business areas, including Learning at Your Desk, our e-training option. If professional qualifications are required to perform your role, we may be able to sponsor you.

Telephone and face-to-face counselling is also offered, if required.
