Benefits for all

Private Medical Insurance

We want you to feel supported when you are well, as well as when you may need a medical intervention.  By providing Private Medical Insurance to everyone who joins us, we hope that if the worst should happen, you can be back to feeling well as soon as possible.  Depending on the level of your role, you may be offered cover for yourself, your partner, and in some roles, your family as well.   For those who want to add additional family members to their cover at their own cost, we have great rates to allow you to do this.

 

Contributory Pension Scheme

We provide a Group Self Invested Pension Plan (SIPP) which is offered on a contributory basis, matched up to 6%.  Assuming you meet the age and earnings criteria, you will be Auto-Enrolled into the scheme three months after joining the Company.  You are able to contribute as much as you would like to on a monthly basis from your salary (subject to not dropping below the National Minimum Wage), and you are able to manage your fund and investments via our user friendly, on- line benefits portal, iFlex.

 

Life Assurance

To support your loved ones, should the worst happen, we offer a Life Assurance benefit of four times annual salary.  When you join you will be asked to complete a Nomination of Beneficiary form to indicate who you would like to receive this benefit in the event that it is required.

 

Annual Leave

We offer a very generous annual leave entitlement of 28 days per year for all employees (pro-rata’d for those who work part time).  In some areas of the business, three of these days must be used over the Christmas/New Year period, but in addition to the statutory eight Bank Holidays, we hope that you can see that we put great value on employees being able to take time away from work to recharge their batteries!

We also offer the facility via iFlex, to purchase up to five days additional annual leave per year (based on a minimum level of service) or to sell annual leave (up to five days per year).

 

Profit Related Pay

We are really proud of the achievements of the Company, and would like employees to share in our success.  Dependent on the division you work within, you may be eligible to receive a payment under the Profit Related Pay Scheme, subject to meeting the scheme criteria.

 

Share Incentive Scheme

To allow employees to benefit from the success of the Company, we offer an HMRC approved Share Incentive Scheme, which opens annually each October.  You are able to contribute up the HMRC limit each month (currently £150), and after the full 12 month period, the total of the money accrued is used to purchase shares.  These are then held in individual employee accounts, and can be sold at any time; the longer they are held the more tax efficient they become.

 

Long Service Awards

To reward employees for their service with the Company, we offer an exciting long service awards programme.  At five year intervals following your five year anniversary you will receive a number of points to spend on line in our reward catalogue, offering everything from jewellery, items for the home and garden, accessories to help you pursue your hobbies, and experience days out.

 

Mobile Phones

For those employees that need to stay in touch when at work, whether office or field based, we offer iPhones to all.  These are regularly updated to ensure you can stay in touch when you need to.

 

Employee Assistance Programme

For those time when you may feel you need additional support, we offer a 24 hour, completely confidential helpline, offering assistance with a wide range of personal issues.

Learning & Development – your personal development

Our current internal development programmes include Achieving Your Potential – a programme consisting of five workshops throughout the year for all of our High Performing employees. The programme is linked to a robust Development Plan and builds self-awareness, self-confidence and influencing skills to help continue to lead high performance across the business.

New Manager Programme – Coloplast is keen to fill 2 out of 3 manager positions internally. The New Manager Programme is offered to all newly promoted People Managers at around six months in to their new role, and includes a week at our headquarters in Denmark. This is a great opportunity to learn fundamental skills around managing and motivating teams, as well as being able to network with senior leaders in Coloplast and other new People Managers from other locations globally.

People Manager Forum – Each year we bring together all of our People Managers to focus on leadership skills and personal development. As People Managers have the biggest influence on the engagement of our employees, it is important that we invest the time to focus on personal leadership skills, introduce new tools, hear from other leaders and be inspired to apply new skills as a leader at Coloplast.

We are a fast growing organisation and training will be provided both for your current role to build on your area of expertise, and for potential roles as you choose to progress in your career with us.
