Our Benefits & Policies

Remuneration and Incentive Schemes

We are committed to ensuring that we reward our employees through remuneration policies which include bonus and long term incentive plans for all staff to reward excellent performance.


We currently offer the following benefits:

We take care of you and your family by providing a Comprehensive Company paid medical insurance scheme.

We care about the environment and are encouraging employees to take steps to reduce their cardon footprint so the team can opt in to salary sacrifice for an electric car.

Planning for your future is important, therefore we have a Pension Plan in place which enables both you and NewRiver to contribute a % sum towards this. We also offer complementary sessions with a Pensions Advisor to provide you with expert advice on your Pension plan.

Planning a holiday or wanting to take time out? We offer 25 days holidays (excluding bank holidays) and you have the choice to buy up to 5 days more holidays each year.

We offer a dental insurance plan to provide cover for a variety of dental treatments. This benefit is employee paid.

We provide life assurance to all our employees. The scheme enables us to provide a tax-free lump sum benefit payment to an employee’s family or dependants of up to 5 x your salary.

Our Income Protection Scheme provides insurance to replace part of your basic salary if you are unable to perform your duties with us due to illness or injury. This benefit provides up to 75% of your salary should you qualify to receive the insurance.

We offer paid sabbatical leave as a benefit to encourage our employees to innovate, learn new skills, gain wider knowledge and pursue their interests (e.g. volunteer, travel, research, write.) It’s one way to reward employees who have been working with us for a long time. After 10 years’ service, you are eligible to take paid sabbatical leave of up to 6 weeks.

To support your daily commute, we offer various benefits to assist you including season ticket loans and a Ride2Work scheme.

Our Policies

Our employee handbook has been designed so that our employees have a full understanding about their employment with us. It contains details of all the key People policies and how our employees are supported in the workplace.

We continually strive to provide the most flexible policies to enable all our employees to combine a fulfilling career supported by family friendly policies for all our employees. This includes generous provisions such as:

After 2 years’ service with us, you will qualify for Company paid Shared Parental Leave. This entitlement is full pay for your first 16 weeks of leave and 50% of your basic salary for the remaining 10 weeks of leave.

Whilst also receiving Statutory Maternity Pay, after 2 years’ service with us, you will qualify for Company paid Maternity Leave. This entitlement is full pay for your first 16 weeks of Ordinary Maternity Leave (OML) and 50% of your basic salary for the remaining 10 weeks of OML.

You will be entitled to two weeks full pay.

Our excellent training and development policy enables our employees to take up to 5 days study leave per year.

NewRiver actively support their employees to volunteer. Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy, for the benefit of society, the community, the environment, or individuals. It is unpaid and undertaken freely and by choice. Employees will be allowed 1 day paid leave per year to support volunteering activities.
