All permanent staff of Autism Initiatives and its subsidiary companies enjoy a wide range of benefits.
As a full time member of staff you will be entitled to 25 days leave plus public bank holidays. After 3 years of continuous service the leave days will increase to 26 rising to 28 after 4 years’ service and 30 days after 5 years’ service.If you work part time you will get a proportion of the holiday entitlement (pro rata) depending on how many days you work.
Autism Initiatives use a workplace pension scheme for automatic enrolment. Eligible jobholders will automatically be enrolled into the workplace pension within 90 days of being assessed as eligible. You will receive further information about your jobholder status and rights within statutory communications. Once you are a member of the pension scheme you will receive a joiner pack from the pension provider. This will include comprehensive information about auto enrolment
