Utilitywise Employee Benefits

At Utilitywise, your reward for doing your job well is more than just your monthly salary. As a Utilitywise colleague you have access to a range of benefits. Find out more below:

  • Career Development

    We offer colleagues the opportunity to take part in both internal and external training. We’ll even help fund any professional qualifications you undertake that are relevant to your role.

    We also offer Team Manager and Operations Manager-in-Development programmes to help you progress up the operational career ladder – all of our energy consultants and team managers are welcome to apply.

  • Pension and Sharesave Schemes

    All Utilitywise, colleagues with more than twelve months of service can join our Employee Sharesave Scheme. It’s a great way to save on a regular basis and provides you with the opportunity to buy Utilitywise shares at a discounted rate. Our Sharesave and Contributory Pension Schemes allow our colleagues to save money every month and plan for the future.

    When you begin working at Utilitywise, you’ll be automatically enrolled in our Contributory Pension Scheme. When government legislation began to impact Utilitywise, we wanted to provide our employees with a better than average pension scheme. We commissioned a financial advisor to help us and a pension scheme held by Scottish Widows was selected – it’s one of the best employee pension schemes on the market.

  • Flexible Holiday Package

    At Utilitywise you can tailor your holiday package to fit your lifestyle. Every year we give our colleagues the opportunity to buy up to five additional days of leave. You can even sell your annual leave back to Utilitywise.

    Additionally, you can:

    • Accrue additional leave each year, based on your length of service; for every year you work at Utilitywise, you’ll gain an additional day of annual leave (capped at five days);
    • Have every Bank Holiday off work;
    • Enjoy Christmas and New Year with your family and friends when Utilitywise closes over the holiday season.
  • Health and Wellbeing

    The health and wellbeing of our employees is a big focus at Utilitywise. We want our colleagues to feel comfortable within their working environment – and be fit and healthy. To help our colleagues enjoy work, we offer:

    • Discounted gym memberships;
    • An Employee Assistance Programme;
    • A Cycle to Work scheme.

    In September 2017, we achieved the North East Better Health at Work Award – Bronze Level, a testament to our ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of our colleagues.
