Nominated beneficiaries can be recorded by completing the life assurance nomination form, which is originally sent to you with your contract of employment.

Please note, Life Assurance only applies up to the age of 75 years.

Entitlement for UK employees is 25 working days per annum, with no further increase. The holiday year runs from 1 January to 31 December

When you join the Company, you will receive a pension pack along with your contract providing you with all necessary information regarding the auto-enrolment pension scheme and enrolment procedures. The scheme operates on a contributory basis and % contributions are in line with pension auto-enrolment legislation.

Corporate Eye Care 
The Company provides a corporate eye care benefit to all UK employees who work with visual display units (VDUs). VDU users are defined as employees who habitually use display screen equipment as a significant part of their normal work. 
This benefit includes a full eye and eyesight test by an optometrist up to £25 and £50 towards corrective appliances where they are required solely for VDU use. 
Simply go along to any opticians, have your eye test and purchase your glasses or contact lenses, keep the receipt and process via the expenses system.

Interest-free Season Ticket Loan 
All permanent and fixed term contract Williams Lea UK employees can apply for an interest free season ticket loan once they have completed their probationary period, up to a maximum of £10,000.00. Full details are available on the season ticket loan application form available on the EMEA HR page, accessed through Front Door.

Referral Scheme 
We are keen to encourage all employees to recommend potential future employees to Williams Lea and in recognition of this, we operate a Referral Scheme. To find out more about the current scheme and how you could benefit please look for the Talent Acquisition section on the EMEA HR page, accessed through Front Door.

Mobile Phones 
Williams Lea operate a BYOD (bring your own device) policy. If your role requires use of a mobile phone to perform your daily tasks, your manager will approve your entitlement to a £20 monthly allowance, which will be made via payroll and subject to Tax and National Insurance deductions. This allowance can be used to source a new separate SIM to your personal phone, or you can opt to use your personal phone number for work purposes. You will need to ensure this is in place by your start date. The WLT Mobile Device policy can be found on the Information Security SharePoint page, accessed through Front Door.
