The NHS Pension Scheme continues to be one of the most generous and comprehensive pension arrangements in the UK and is a key part of the reward offer for NHS staff. An NHS pension includes life assurance benefits, voluntary early retirement benefits, ill health benefits and a range of other benefits.
Employee contributions are tiered by salary/pensionable earnings and your employer pays a contribution equal to 20.68 per cent of your salary towards the cost of your pension. Contributions to the scheme are tax free, bringing down the cost of membership.
Your Car Benefit Scheme is the smarter way to run a car. A fixed monthly amount is taken directly from your gross salary and in return, you get the use of a brand new car – we sort everything else out at no extra cost.
Not only is a brand new car included, there is also:
All of this and no deposits.
