BENEFITS AND DEVELOPMENT
Dosh, dough, the bacon, the bread - call it what you wish; it’s the reason many of us go to work and Charles Tyrwhitt (CT) knows that salary is important.
Our compensation is competitive and we constantly review the market to keep it that way. We know it takes more than money to attract and retain the best in the business so we offer much more.
The first is that you’ll find CT is a genuinely great place to work with an inclusive culture that welcomes everyone. We encourage every Tyrwhitteer to be themselves and have a vibrant D&I group driving action across CT. To back this up we’ve signed up with a company called Inclusive Employers to support us in making CT the most inclusive and diverse place it can be.
Every Tyrwhitteer enjoys generous holiday allowance, a suite of health and wellbeing benefits (including optional private medical plans), pension, paid parental and sick leave, employee discounts with various retailers, childcare vouchers, long service awards and great bonus potential.
When you join CT you will be invited to sign up to The LINK – this is our internal communications and benefits portal. Here you will find daily news, leadership vlogs, all the information you need about CT and most fantastically discounts and savings from 1000s of retailers, entertainment venues and utilities companies. You can save on pretty much anything you could want to buy! There’s also a 50% discount on CT clothing and 30% off at The White Company as well - you’re welcome!
We care about the things you care about so we’ll give you an extra day off for your Wedding Day and one paid day per year to volunteer for a good cause. We even buy you a birthday cake each year and if you’re lucky Nick (our founder) will send you a hand written card - true!!
Additionally we know you are serious about your career and we want you to grow and develop as much as you do. We have talented line managers who will support and coach you. Plus, there are a host of learning and training opportunities to suit everyone whatever your future aspirations – in the past 3 years we’ve supported over 30 colleagues onto apprenticeships programmes across all areas of the business
We also take colleague Wellbeing seriously and give all colleagues access to a Wellbeing hub online which contains lots of useful information to support your
physical, mental and financialWellbeing. We also have trained Mental Health First Aiders across the business and partner with the best external providers
to give you access to support when you need it.
