Staff benefits

Growth is important at Barts Health, so we are strongly committed to developing staff to ensure they achieve their full potential as well as ensuring that they receive the best benefits possible.

Benefits for our staff

As an employee of Barts Health, you’ll have exclusive access to a wide range of fantastic offers, over and above your salary. These include specially selected products and services giving you money savings discounts and extra value on special and everyday purchases.

Support with temporary accommodation

At any point in time, there are hundreds of flats, houses and offices that lie empty in London. Of course, there are good reasons why - some will be awaiting new owners, some will be vacant before new tenants move in. Whatever the reason they are all decent buildings that are simply not being used.

At Ad Hoc, they work with the owners of these properties to offer affordable short-term living accommodation for young professionals, key workers and students.

It’s an innovative approach that is proven to work. You get accommodation at a fraction of the cost that you would expect, and property owners get peace of mind, knowing that there are guardians in their property keeping an eye on it.

If you are interested in this scheme please call the Ad Hoc Guardian team on tel 020 7226 9900 or email guardians@adhoc.eu.

Salary sacrifice scheme for a new car

Get a brand new car, fully maintained and insured every three years, in exchange for a ‘salary sacrifice’ – a fixed monthly reduction from your gross salary, taken before tax and National Insurance, that could cost you less than a normal personal car lease.

Home electronics for staff scheme

This scheme allows NHS PAYE employees to buy equipment of your choice from your employer through easy monthly payroll reductions, whilst saving up to 25% on the cost.

The product range includes laptops, tablets, desktop PCs, software, printers, TVs, Blu-ray players, home cinema systems, cameras and camcorders, gaming consoles, washing machines, tumble dryers, fridges and freezers, dishwashers and cookers.

Childcare vouchers

Barts Health runs a childcare voucher scheme and invites all employees to take advantage of the scheme. Using childcare vouchers can save parents up to £900 a year.

  • Pay enhancements to reward out-of-hours, shift and overtime working where applicable
  • Better career and salary progression based on the application of knowledge and skills
