We offer the following benefits to our staff:
Buy and sell holidays
At the end of every year CDA employees have the option to buy or sell holidays as part of the following year’s entitlement. You can buy or sell up to a total of 3 days and the deductions will be taken out of your monthly salary over a 12 month period.
Employees are expected to wear clothing that reflects the image of CDA. As a result CDA will provide you with free polo shirts/formal shirts, sweatshirts and fleeces and any further uniform specifically needed for your role. You must also wear black jeans, trousers, skirt or dress and black shoes (not provided by CDA unless your role requires safety boots).
Company Pension Scheme
CDA operates a contributory pension scheme with Royal London. You will automatically be enrolled in to the pension scheme with a matched contribution of 5% on the 3rd month of your employment.
Should you wish to increase your contribution to the pension scheme CDA will match this up to 5%.
CDA also offers a salary exchange for the pension scheme which means that you will save 12% national insurance on the amount you exchange.
The company offers Childcare Vouchers as a Salary Sacrifice Scheme to all employees – converting part of your salary in return for electronic childcare vouchers which you can use to pay your childcare provider.
