Benefits

24 February 2014

We believe that the reward package at Ofcom is based on much more than just salary. Our aim is to empower colleagues to undertake interesting and important work and we are committed to investing and supporting people to achieve their full potential.

We believe that our colleagues are best-placed to choose the benefits that are of most value to them, so we have designed a flexible benefits package to suit individual needs. The range of benefits that can be chosen reflects the flexible environment we aim to create.

Our standard benefits include:

  • Flexible benefits allowance
  • Pension allowance
  • 25 days holiday
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Life Assurance
  • Annual Health Check
  • Income Protection Insurance

You can also choose from a wider range of flexible benefits, including the option to purchase additional annual leave, travel insurance, private medical cover for your family.... and much more.

We understand that the working environment is important to our colleagues, which is why we ensure that our offices are bright, modern places to work.

We have offices in Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff, as well as field operations offices in Merseyside and Surrey and our London HQ, where colleagues can take advantage of the on-site restaurant and gym.

We also believe that we have a part to play in protecting the environment around us. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and have introduced many initiatives to help us consume less energy, including a cycle-to-work scheme and a car-share scheme.

At Ofcom, people are our greatest asset, so developing our people is a fundamental part of our ethos.

We take professional development very seriously, and encourage colleagues not only to seek development to improve their performance in role, but also CPD (continuous professional development) to enhance their professional competence and career opportunities. Colleagues use personal development plans to record and prioritise their personal development needs.

We then provide a variety of opportunities for colleagues to meet those needs, including:

  • a comprehensive set of internal training courses;
  • career coaching;
  • investment to attend appropriate external courses;
  • sponsorships for professional or academic qualifications; and
  • memberships of professional bodies.

As well as these 'traditional' methods of development, we also encourage secondments, project-based work and 'on the job' learning.
