Benefits & Wellbeing (The Good Stuff)

We think working here’s awesome enough already. But we know our fantastic colleagues deserve more than a few perks here and there. Happily, we have loads.

Happy holidays

Have a break, have a… holiday. 25 days of it in fact.

And once you’ve worked here for five years, you’ll get another three days. That’s on top of all the recognised public holidays in your part of the UK. Oh, and you get your birthday off too!

Our core benefits

Our pension scheme matches your contributions from 4% up to 10% and you’ll be auto-enrolled within the first few months. You can join earlier, opt out or increase the amount you pay in as you like. We want you to be in tip-top condition – at work and at home. That’s why we offer everyone who works here private healthcare through Bupa. Access to the Trust means you’ll get to see a specialist faster, whether you need a quick check up with an expert, a bit of physio or it’s something more serious, your medical plan cover with Bupa can help.

As with any private healthcare plan, there’s an excess payable and limits on outpatient appointments.

Through Bupa, we also provide access to a 24/7 helpline called Healthy Minds. If you need to talk to someone in confidence about anything that’s on your mind from relationships, to financial worries, legal issues and so on – there’s a trained therapist on hand to help you straightaway. Upon joining, we provide personal accident cover and life assurance, so you are covered in the event of injury, death or serious illness.

Our voluntary benefits

Everyone’s an individual here. So, as well as our core benefits, we’ve got stuff you can add (or remove), pretty much on demand.
Depending on your individual wants and needs, you can opt to add a partner or whole family to your private healthcare plan, choose standard or enhanced levels of dental cover, buy and sell holiday, get a bike with our Ride-to-Work cycle scheme, give tax free to charity and save on travel with a season ticket loan. You also get access to Virgin Tribe. This is a Virgin-wide (not just Virgin Media-wide) benefit, which gives you access to discounts across other Virgin brands, including Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Active, as well as heaps of discounts with partner brands.

Connected Offers – Exclusively for #TeamVirginMediaO2. Now Virgin Media and O2 have joined forces, we’re all set to upgrade the UK with superfast broadband and epic 5G coverage. You can enjoy the best of both worlds, take your pick. Save stacks on our mobile, broadband, TV and home phones services.  And it’s not just you who can make the most of discounted rates with Virgin MediaO2 – with Mates Rates, your friends and family can join in too.

We’re also giving you access to a range of financial wellbeing benefits and financial education from our partners Salary Finance.  Their products are all about making things hassle-free, whether it be for savings or loans, it’s all about simplicity, with all payments taken from your monthly salary.

Finally, we have partnered up with wellbeing experts Unmind to give you and a loved one access to their digital workplace mental health platform. Designed to empower employees to measure, understand and improve their mental wellbeing.
