This is a summary only. The personal employment contract, the staff handbook and the rules of a relevant scheme take precedence.
Personal Development / Staff Training
The company has always been committed to personal development. Specific training should be agreed with the Principal and should be of benefit to both the company and the employee.
Stormforce Coaching Courses
Subject to availability, staff may enrole on Stormforce Coaching Courses free of charge.
Family of all staff can purchase courses, charters and races at discounted prices.
"Cash & Carry" Shopping
Having completed their probationary period, staff are eligible for a "Macro Card" which they can use for discount shopping.
Trade Price & Discount Shopping
Staff can purchase goods and clothing from our trade accounts at cost price. This concession is only open to staff buying items for themselves or their immediate family and may be subject to a minimum order size. Trade accounts include Musto, Gul, Gill, Henri Lloyd, LDC, RYA Publications and Kelvin Hughes. Staff also receive discounts on all products at Andark Diving.
Stormforce Coaching operates a Childcare Voucher scheme. This is a ‘salary sacrifice’ scheme whereby the employee receives an amount of their salary in the form of childcare. This effectively makes part of their salary become non-taxable and exempt from National Insurance. The vouchers can be at used at most forms of childcare including nurseries, child-minders, nannies, before and after school clubs, holiday clubs, crèches and most play schemes. If an employee is already paying or about to pay for childcare, this scheme will save them just over £75 a month.
Cycle to Work Scheme
Stormforce Coaching offers a “Cycle to Work” scheme for tax-free hire of bikes and bike safety equipment. This saves staff 32% of the cost of a new bicycle and accessories. Bikes can be purchased from any retailer in the UK up to a value of £1,000.
Bonus Annual Leave
After five years continuous full time employment with Stormforce Coaching, staff will have earned an extra two days annual leave. After ten years continuous service, staff will have earned a further three days (totaling five additional days) annual leave.
Extra Maternity and Paternity Leave
Following two years continuous employment with Stormforce Coaching any staff member who is eligible for Statutory Maternity or Paternity Leave will receive from the company an additional week of leave on full pay (to be taken within 12 months of the babies' birth and assuming they return to work for at least 12 months following maternity or paternitry leave).
