Enjoy Rewards

Every Step of the Way

The core values at United Learning are ambition, confidence, creativity, respect, enthusiasm and determination. But for our incredible staff to truly believe in those values, they need to feel valued themselves - starting with financial rewards and solid career progression.

Quite simply, we believe in leading market trends with better remuneration packages, so that we can ensure the best talent joins – and stays – with us. As such, you can generally expect to earn more at United Learning than if you took a role in the maintained sector. In addition, our benefits options are undoubtedly competitive, with every member of staff being entitled to a core benefits and lifestyle package, plus a number of ‘bolt on’ flexible options.

Core Benefits

Every employee at United Learning will receive:

  • A contributory pension scheme, meaning we’ll save together for your retirement.
  • Occupational sick pay, protecting you and your family.
  • A higher salary than you can generally expect to receive in the maintained sector.
  • Reduced fees at a number of independent schools for your children.
  • Continuous Professional Development options that will be tailored to your needs.
  • At least eight INSET days per year in all our academies, with three dedicated to planning.
  • BUPA Cover (senior appointments only).
  • Competitive maternity, paternity and adoption benefits.
  • The scope for flexible working.

Flexible Benefits

You can also choose to sacrifice some of your salary to enjoy the following benefits:

  • Save up to £1,000 a year with Childcare Vouchers.
  • Enjoy a brand new bicycle for a lower cost in the Cycle to Work scheme.
  • Improve your health with up to 40% off a gym membership, courtesy of GymFlex.
  • Reduce your outgoings with a number of retail savings.

As the payment for any benefits you choose are taken from your salary before tax and National Insurance is deducted, you will make considerable savings – meaning more in your pocket at the end of each month.

Enhanced Benefits

In some cases you may also be eligible for a relocation allowance up to £8,000 – aimed at helping you rent or buy somewhere new to live.
