We trust our team members to take ownership of their objectives, that’s why we track performance through setting objectives and monitoring outcomes not through clock-watching. We are flexible with our working hours and trust you to work smart.
We believe you should take time away from work to recharge, pursue other interests, travel or just spend time with friends and family. That’s why all our team in the UK have 27 days and in Germany 30 days (pro-rata) of annual leave per calendar year, in addition to bank holidays.
Our purpose is to create great workspace experiences for our members, so our default is to work from the office. But if you want a change of scenery, or need to focus, working smart sometimes means working from home or away from the office.
All UK team members are auto-enrolled into our Company Pension – The People’s Pension. Techspace will contribute 3% of Qualifying Earnings, which along with your own contribution results in a >8% contribution each month. Of course, you can contribute more if you wish. For our German team, this is covered in its entirity by the government.
We understand that commuting is expensive and are here to help. So, if you need us to pay your annual train ticket upfront you can apply for a season ticket loan. Techspace’s loan to you will be repayable in 12 instalments and deducted directly from your pay. In Germany we will contribute €300 to your annual train ticket which is not repayable.
Techspace gives you the opportunity to purchase a bike for your commute (or part of your commute) to work through pre-tax salary sacrifice. This means we will pay the upfront cost of your purchase, which includes the bike, safety and security equipment, panniers, child seats etc. leaving you to repay this amount over 12 months from your pre-tax income.
Techspace covers the cost (excluding any income tax liability) of private health insurance as well as a cash plan. The cash plan gives you the opportunity to spend, for example, £120 per year on eye care, £120 per year on dental care, £300 per year on a range of therapies and £150 on Bupa health assessments all of which can be reimbursed by the cash plan. You also have access to a private GP through either Babylon Health or DrCareAnywhere.
We're always looking to invest in our team, whether its career progression planning, skills and leadership training and development or certification. Everyone is different, and every role varies, so this will be evaluated on a case by case basis with each individual. Of course, if you want to discuss a change in role or department at any time, we're open to supporting you anywhere we can!
