Staff discounts and benefits

Cycle to work
We encourage our staff to live healthy lifestyles and as part of this WVT have signed up to the cycle to work scheme. This scheme helps staff with the purchase of a tax-free bike for journeys to and from the workplace and saves approximately 40 per cent on the cost of a new bike. We buy the bike on your behalf and lease it back to you through a monthly salary sacrifice scheme, deducted from your gross pay. This allows employees to make savings on tax and national insurance and pay for their bike in a manageable way. Once the hire period is complete, you have the option to buy the bike for a fair market value or to extend the lease. To find out more information on cycling to work click here
Our staff can lease a car through the Trust. Qualifying staff who sign up to the scheme will have the money deducted from gross salary each month, allowing staff to make savings through tax and national insurance contributions. There are hundreds of cars available through the scheme so employees can choose one that suits their needs.
