At Nunn Hayward we are proud of our reputation of being a professional and reliable firm, and we know that this is due to the way in which our staff carry out their responsibilities. All personnel are valued members of the team, and we actively promote an ‘open door’ policy to encourage good communication between partners and employees.
At Nunn Hayward we recognise how important it is to pay our staff a realistic and competitive salary which reflects their contribution to the business. We have high expectations of our staff and reward them accordingly. Salaries are reviewed annually.
In addition to basic salary, staff benefit from a bonus scheme, thus enjoying a share in the profitability of the company.
Nunn Hayward operates an optional personal pension scheme on a ‘salary sacrifice’ basis. We contribute employer National Insurance contributions in order to maximise the benefit for our employees. The scheme is fully transferable.
Flexibility is important to us and we recognise the benefit to both staff and the company of offering flexible working hours. Full-time staff are required to be in the office for the core hours of 10.00am to 12.00pm and 2.00pm to 4.00pm each day and may work the remainder of their 37.5 hour week to suit their business and personal needs. A minimum of half an hour must be taken between 12.00pm and 2.00pm each day for lunch.
Staff are entitled to 21.5 days’ holiday per year, in addition to all Bank Holidays. The office closes for the Christmas break and 3.5 days’ leave must be reserved for this time.
Employees who have completed five years’ service with Nunn Hayward are awarded an extra day’s leave for each further complete year of service, up to a maximum of 26.5 days. Employees who are with us for ten complete years receive two additional days’ leave.
All leave is pro rated for part-time employees.
We support and encourage continuing professional development and are members of a national training organisation -Mercia – who offer regular training courses on a variety of subjects.
In today’s fast-changing technological environment we know how essential it is to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in order to remain competitive. Our modern offices are equipped with the latest technology. Our staff are our greatest asset and we are committed to investing in them to enable them to stay abreast of the latest developments.
All employees are entitled to use the facilities at a local health club free of charge. This is conveniently located just five minutes away from the Gerrards Cross office, and our flexible working arrangements mean that staff can take full advantage of this benefit.
We also provide all employees with off-peak membership of Gerrards Cross Squash Club where they are able to play during lunchtimes, early evenings or weekends.
The firm offers participation in a competitive scheme with PruHealth to provide private health insurance for employees, on a ‘salary sacrifice’ basis. Spouses can be included in the scheme, as can children up to the age of 21 (or 24 if in full-time education). Additional benefits of the scheme include membership of Cannons Health Clubs at a reduced cost and vitality points giving cash rebates or discounts on health screening at Champney’s.
The welfare of our employees is very important to us and we recognise that there are times when personal and work-related issues might affect work life. We offer support via the Validium Group who provide confidential support for partners, employees and their families.
