We truly value our team members, because we know they are the ones that make our company so unique and successful. This is why we put a lot of effort into ensuring the happiness of everybody that works here.
Sure, we have all the usual company benefits like a pension scheme, life insurance, 25 days holiday, enhanced maternity pay scheme, and train season ticket loans. But there’s a lot more that goes into making Moneybarn such a special, friendly place to work.
Once a month, everyone catches up in our hub area to learn more about how the company is performing, our key challenges, and our wider team’s accomplishments. Shamus, our highly-engaging Managing Director, hosts the forum and invites questions and input from everyone there. We’ll also keep you up-dated by sharing any news via our intranet ‘Hoot’.
We want everybody to be happy and excel in their role, which is why we love to know what you think about working for us, be it good or bad. So, once a year you’ll get the chance to complete a survey.
The results are shared at our all-company briefing with the leadership team highly committed to taking action wherever necessary.
They say it’s the most important meal of the day, which is why we get together to share a delicious breakfast before we start our monthly all-company briefing. You’ll also find there’s always a good selection of fruit around the office, with a fresh delivery every other day.
We take your wellbeing seriously at Moneybarn, both mental and physical. There’s an on-site gym, plus a range of lunchtime and after-work fitness sessions, including yoga, body conditioning and a walking group – all run by fully-trained coaches.
Alongside this is a series of wellbeing presentations delivered by our team of body conditioning coaches, such as sleep clinics, healthy food tasting sessions, and 28-day lifestyle food plans.
A focus on your development isn’t just an empty promise at Moneybarn. We’ll do what we can to support your career progression, including sponsorship, professional fees and internal moves. This results in plenty of opportunities for you to, not only move up in your own department, but to also work in our other specialist ones.
Fancy going for a bike ride into town at lunchtime? With our on-site Barney Bikes available for you to use within the local area, you most certainly can. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even explore part of the beautiful South Downs National Park – just don’t get lost.
Everybody here goes above and beyond on a regular basis, which is hugely appreciated and rewarded. Although, there’s always somebody that makes even more of an effort, from helping a team member through a personal challenge to smashing targets – and we love to recognise it when you do.
You get to select your own personal ‘Stars of the Month’, with the stand-out team members being acknowledged at the all-company briefing.
If you enjoy playing sports and being active, you’ll love working here. Don’t worry if you don’t though – there are plenty of other less strenuous clubs and team get-togethers you can take part in.
Our team members get involved in lots of events, including the Chichester Corporate Challenge, The Welsh 3000s, and The Three Peaks Challenge, while raising money for charity too. There are also more regular, weekly activities like Frisbee Friday and the Wednesday night running club.
Through the Moneybarn Social Impact Fund, we’re committed to investing 1% of our pre-tax profit into community programmes, money advice programmes and social research. Everybody is invited to be a part of the panel that selects the charities.
But that’s not the only way we support charities. Our team members regularly do fundraisers too, from the MacMillan Coffee Morning (everyone loves a slice of cake) to the Dress-down Friday collection.
Our dress code is ‘dress appropriately’. So, if you’re off-site having a meeting and representing us, or interviewing a candidate who has made the effort for you, simply keep this in mind. You can let your hair down a bit more on Friday though as it’s our dress-down day.
