Parental

Parental leave

We believe that parenting is a joy and a responsibility that should be shared by all parents. Anyone (regardless of gender) welcoming a newborn (biological or adopted) is offered 6 months paid and a further 6 months unpaid leave.

This can be taken anytime from 6 months before the child is born to when the child is 24 months old.

Other

Additional paid leave

Additional paid leave of up to 15 days per year is available for significant life events that require extended periods of time off from work, but do not always provide relaxation and rejuvenation.

Additional unpaid leave

Additional unpaid leave is available during the year if required. The salary is adjusted prorata based on number of calendar days of additional leaves taken.
