  • Employee Ownership Trust:

  • As an Employee Ownership Trust, we do things a little differently from some other organisations. Every one of our employees has a voice and our people are highly motivated and committed. Our structure allows for our combined success as an organisation to be shared equitably across the Company. The trust is indirect, meaning that eligible employees are not shareholders directly, however they are held ‘in-trust’ by the Trust’s Board of Directors.

    • The Employee Ownership Trust allows for a yearly tax-free bonus that is in addition to the discretionary performance related bonuses to be paid to all eligible employees – dependant on the company’s annual performance.
    • Eligible employees: Employees must be employed for 6 months before being an eligible beneficiary of the Trust.
