Equality of Opportunity

We offer a clear, competitive salary structure. We use a robust, safe recruitment policy to make sure offer equality of opportunity for all applicants.

Staff Support

Staff get full induction training. They’re given timely supervisions, appraisals and access to a network of support.

All DISC employees have individual training development plans.  There are regular team meetings and practice development groups. We have staff away days and continuing personal and professional development.

Benefits

We believe in the work-life balance. DISC employees get 27 days’ holiday in the first 12 months of work. This increases to 32 days pro rota, in the second year –  that’s over six weeks, plus bank holidays.

Pension Scheme

All our staff  are put on the auto enrollment pension scheme. There is the chance to access a contributory pension scheme through Aviva.

Childcare Vouchers

We offer childcare vouchers through the Computershare salary sacrifice scheme. It means you can save up to £1,196 per year on tax and insurance. You can manage your account online.

TUPE

Where DISC wins contracts that were previously run by other providers, their staff may transfer to us under TUPE regulations.

We’re very experienced in managing this change over. Around 14% of our workers have transferred under TUPE.

So, if you do so, your previous employment length of service will continue. Also, most of the terms and conditions of your original employment contract will stay the same.
