Wholegrain offers all contracted team members a few additional perks. Because we’re nice like that! And in true Wholegrain style, our perks are all environmentally friendly and good for you.

Environmentally Friendly Benefits:

We offer a reward to all permanent Wholegrain team members who switch their electricity to a renewable energy supplier, such as Ecotricity, Good Energy, Bulb or OVO Greener Energy.

Once you’ve made the swap, simply provide us with some proof that you’ve switched from a standard tariff to a 100% renewable tariff, and we’ll reward you with one full paid day off each year to say thanks. In return, we ask that you don’t take the piss by switching straight back again. If you do want to change back for any reason, please talk to us first.

In addition, we provide all our contracted employees with free access to London’s Santander Cycles. So if you want to nip out for any reason while in London, you can whizz there under your own steam without using any public transport.

We encourage you to ride safely on London’s busy streets and we strongly advise wearing a helmet. If you need any safety equipment, such as a helmet or reflective items, please ask us and we’ll supply them to you free of charge.

Good For You Benefits:

We like to reward our team for their hard work and dedication. To say thank you, we offer you your Birthday off if it falls on a working day. This is a use-or-lose day.

If you wish to take the day off, it must be your Birthday, and is not transferable to another day or week.

On top of Birthday’s off, we would also like to say thank you to our employees who have been with us for a while. We recognised the value you add to Wholegrain and we really appreciate all your hard work.

For employees who have been with Wholegrain for two years or more, you will accrue an additional day off. The longer you stay with us, the more annual leave you can accrue. For every two years of service you will receive an additional day off. To a maximum of 4 extra days off.

For Example:

  • 2 years of service – 1 extra day accrued on top of base leave
  • 4 years of service – 1 extra day (total of 2 extra days accrued)
  • 6 years of service – 1 extra day (total of 3 extra days accrued)
  • 8+ years of service – 1 extra day (total of 4 extra days accrued)
