Training and development
Whether it's something you want to learn or something we recommend you learn, BPP invests heavily in your career development.
We provide a comprehensive in-house leadership and management training programme and a wide range of personal and professional development opportunities.
You will have free access to all of BPP's courses – so from gaining an ACCA accountancy qualification to a Graduate Diploma in Law, you can take your career in any direction you like.
BPP makes sure it gets the basics right with good, competitive salaries. These are reviewed annually.
Everyone needs time to relax and rejuvenate. That's why we provide generous annual leave of 30 days for teaching staff and 25 days for support staff (rising to 30 days after five years and pro-rated for part-time employees).
As part of our annual benefits selection window, you can purchase up to 10 days' extra paid holiday each year.
Private medical insurance
When you work at BPP, you'll be covered for the cost of private medical treatment as an outpatient or inpatient (up to defined limits).
Subject to meeting scheme requirements set by our provider, this begins as soon as you join and we'll cover the full cost of the premium. You can also choose to buy cover for your spouse, partner or children at corporate rates.
Health cash plan
Our Health Cash Plan provides you reimbursement, up to a set amount, towards everyday healthcare services such as eyesight tests, new glasses, health screening, etc. You can choose to purchase cover from four different levels.
Our Dental Insurance reimburses you for all private dentistry treatment. At the end of your probationary period, you can also purchase cover for you and your family at corporate rates.
In the unfortunate event of your passing away while working at BPP, your nominated beneficiaries will receive a lump sum of four times your annual base salary. At the end of your probationary period you can choose to top up this protection.
Income Protection (PHI)
We know that suffering a long-term illness is stressful enough. So if you're unable to work for 26 consecutive weeks because of illness or injury, you'll be eligible for up to 75% of your annual salary until you are able to return (less the statutory single person's "incapacity benefit", which can be claimed from the state).
From time to time you may need confidential advice, on anything from legal to personal or financial issues. Our Employee Assistance gives you access to free phone support, 24 hours a day.
You'll want to look forward to a well-deserved retirement.
If you are assessed as an "Eligible Job Holder", you will be automatically enrolled into our Group Personal Pension Plan. A 1% pension contribution will be deducted from your monthly salary via salary sacrifice and you will receive a 1% Employer pension contribution as well as receiving the full benefit of the Employer's National Insurance contributions of 13.8%. You will be able to increase your contribution, with BPP matching up to 4% either during the Annual Benefits Selection Window or once you have completed your probation period, whichever comes first.
Employees who are not assessed as an "Eligible Job Holders" will still be able to join our Group Personal Pension Plan once they have completed their probation or during the Annual Benefits Selection Window.
To help you afford a wide range of childcare, you can purchase electronic or paper childcare vouchers from your pre-tax monthly salary. Depending on your tax bracket, the maximum amount of tax exempt vouchers varies from £97 to £243 a month.
'Cycle to work' scheme
With so many benefits to your health, we offer a cycle to work scheme in conjunction with CycleScheme. This gives you the loan of a bike and commuting equipment for a period of one year, tax-free.
At the end of the Hire Period, you will have the option to either purchase the bike, extend the Hire Period, or return the bike.
Season ticket loan
To ease the expense of public transport, our interest-free loan is put into your bank account and we'll simply deduct monthly repayments.
BPP and the community
BPP takes its corporate social responsibility very seriously. With many programmes designed to help our students succeed, we also support the wider community with a range of projects through our Pro Bono Legal Centre – winning a LawWorks award in 2009 for best contribution by a partnership and Best Contribution by a Team of Students for Streetlaw Homeless in the 2011 Awards.
BPP is supportive of our employees doing voluntary and charity work. In 2009 a team of BPP tutors and directors worked on the International Lawyers Project, a legal pro bono initiative supporting the development of the legal profession in Tanzania.
