Our employees are valued for the expertise and professionalism they bring and as such Prisoners Abroad values their contribution and offers the following benefits:

Group Personal Pension Plan

Prisoners Abroad wants its employees to have a comprehensive benefits package that meets their needs now and in the future. We think it is essential that every employee has a pension and to underline Prisoners Abroad’s commitment to this, we will make payments into the scheme of 6.5% (and a minimum employee contribution of 1.5%) from month two of joining the charity.

Annual leave

Employees receive 30 days annual leave per annum (pro rata for part timers) plus bank holidays.

Special Leave

Prisoners Abroad supports employees by offering up to 5 days paid leave in cases of emergency to assist dependant relatives and a period of paid leave for all employees in times of bereavement.

Sickness Absence & Pay

Prisoners Abroad operates a generous sick pay scheme, including periods of full and half pay, subject to certain qualifying conditions.

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

Prisoners Abroad recognises that employees may need support in dealing with a variety of issues throughout their lives and as part of its commitment to caring for staff, has an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), provided in conjunction with WorkLife Support.

The Employee Care EAP is a 365 day a year, 24:7 independent, confidential counselling and information service, free of charge, available to all Prisoners Abroad employees and their immediate family members. Support is available on a range of issues including work related concerns, emotional, legal and financial help.

Family Leave

Prisoners Abroad provides maternity, paternity and parental leave entitlements, including maternity and paternity pay in excess of statutory requirements, available after a qualifying period.

Cycle to Work Scheme

Prisoners Abroad offers qualifying staff the cycle to work scheme where they can purchase a bicycle primarily for work purposes. Part of an employee’s salary can be given up or ‘sacrificed’ and this payment is non-taxable and exempt from National Insurance contributions and therefore present a saving for employees.
