As a modern family business, we have always strived to make Warburtons an enjoyable place to work so that you grow with us as we work together to achieve our vision to be Britain’s Best Food Business.
Our people are the key ingredient needed to achieve this. We value our people and are proud to offer a wide range of reward and benefits, from an award winning pension plan, profit share scheme and voluntary benefits website Extra Dough.
By offering a range of excellent benefits, we can be sure to attract and retain top talent to drive the business forward. We pride ourselves on being on top of our game, leading the way in our industry and our reward package is a reflection on this.
Our profit share payment is a method of rewarding you for your commitment and hard work. It is a discretionary payment usually made in December, which is based on the company’s profits from the previous financial year, your earnings and your company service. To be eligible, you must have been employed during the previous financial year and remain in employment at the date of payment.If you start part way through the year you will receive a pro-rata payment.
Here at Warburtons we have an award winning Pension Plan. If you are aged between 18 and 65 you will be automatically enrolled into the Plan. If you are not between these ages you can elect to join, providing you are eligible to do so.You do not pay tax on any contributions you make to the Plan. As contributions are also paid via a salary sacrifice arrangement known as PensionWise, you do not pay National Insurance on your contributions either. This makes it a tax efficient, simple and effective way of saving and getting the most out of your pension
