The Influential Leadership Programme was a development opportunity I had early on in my role. Ever since, I've been part of the facilitation team. I learn something new about myself every time I facilitate.
Our range of benefits support our employees to improve their wellbeing, maintain a healthy work-life balance, continue to develop their potential and even save them money. We want our employees to feel valued and engaged so that we can all contribute our very best to WaterAid’s ambitious strategy and mission.
Health and wellbeing
We encourage our employees to maintain their wellbeing through onsite discounted yoga classes, massages, outdoor fitness classes and our cycle facilities and purchase scheme. All employees can also access dedicated support through our employee assistance programme or by purchasing their own Health Cash Plan. We promote a healthy work-life balance through a generous annual leave provision (including an option to purchase additional annual leave).
Family and longer term support
We support our employees in maintaining a healthy balance between family and work life through a range of family friendly policies, alongside additional support like child care vouchers. We support employees in their longer term planning through a generous pension scheme, life insurance cover and also provide season ticket loans.
Develop your potential
Through our learning and development programme, all employees are able to further develop their skills and knowledge. Our employees are passionate about WaterAid’s work, so we ensure that everyone is updated on the work of our country programmes through a fantastic weekly meeting for all UK staff as well as via social media and regular newsletters. There are regular knowledge sharing sessions and we also support employees in their own professional development through a variety of schemes.
We recognise that our employees want to meet others and have fun. Our active Staff Association organises regular social activities for employees alongside a WaterAid Film Club and Book Club. We also offer opportunities to support WaterAid outside of the normal 'day job' by getting involved in a range of volunteer activities, including WaterAid events and festivals, running or cheering at marathons, training as a volunteer speaker and many more.
We appreciate that many of our staff members are interested in sustainability, protecting the environment and helping others. Staff can get involved by joining initiatives like our environmental working group, or by supporting the charity of their choice through payroll giving.
Please note that these benefits apply to our UK vacancies.
