Colleague Benefits: Why work with us?
We like to show our appreciation for our colleagues contribution to the success of the business by offering the following benefits:
After 12 weeks service you will be eligible for a 10% staff discount in all our stores.
All Employee Share Options Partnership
After 12 months service with the semichem you will become eligible to participate in the All Employee Share Options Partnership (AESOP). This allows you to become a shareholder in the business. This is a great opportunity to make significant savings in your personal tax and national insurance contributions from pre-tax pay, as well as investing in the business.
It's never too early to consider your future and we operate an attractive contributory 'final salary' Pension Plan, that also covers you for life insurance and a dependant's pension. The Plan is contributory with both you and semichem making a contribution on your behalf, and it would be available immediately following the commencement of employment.
Health Cash Plan
If you are paying the full cost of dental, optical or hospital bills you could benefit from the tax-free cash support towards these and other every day health costs. Cash paid towards your health costs enables you to take preventative measures, supporting the well being of you and your family. The benefits available include, but not limited to, cash towards physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, homeopathy and chiropody.
We have also teamed up with various companies to discounts on the following services:Mortgage Advice; Bereavement Financial Advice Counselling; Combined Benefits Services; Legal Services; BDC Trade Centre (electrical products)
