Benefits of working for us

Many of our staff say one of the biggest benefits of working for Muscular Dystrophy UK is knowing that the hours you spend at work make a real difference to people’s lives.

We are committed to ensuring a positive working culture for all our staff team, as well as helping them to have a good work-life balance.

Here are some of the other benefits of working for Muscular Dystrophy UK:

We offer 25 days per annum annual leave for full time staff plus recognised bank and public holidays. This increases by a day each year after 5 years service up to a maximum of 30 days. For some identified roles we operate a time off in lieu (TOIL) arrangement whereby staff who have worked additional hours for an agreed reason have an opportunity to take compensatory time off in the interests of their health and well-being.

We contribute up to 5% of basic salary into a group personal pension plan. The minimum personal contribution is 3% and the charity will contribute 5%.

We offer a free, 24 hour confidential counselling and information service available to all staff. This is provided by HSF Assist.

All employees aged between 16 and 70 are entitled to death in service benefit, from the first day of employment.

We offer an interest free loan for annual season tickets for travel to work within London.

The Cycle Scheme takes advantage of the Government’s Green Transport Plan. It promotes cycling as a more attractive way of commuting to work by enabling employees to benefit from tax incentives.
