How we support our people

Benefits of working for SSAFA

SSAFA provides lifelong support for our Armed Forces and their families. Every year, through our award winning teams and services, we provide support to around 90,000 people worldwide. We would not be able to do this essential, life-changing work without the talent and hard work of our people.

Employee Benefits

Our company pension scheme is one of the most important parts of your benefits package. It gives you a way of building up a pot of money that you can use to help fund your retirement. SSAFA automatically covers employees with a life assurance scheme, allowing you to provide extra financial protection for your loved ones. 

Your health and wellbeing is important to us so you and your immediate family have access to a range of occupational health resources through BUPA, including an Employee Assistance Programme, GP Anytime HealthLine and PhysioLine.

Our family friendly benefits include (subject to eligibility criteria):

  • company maternity leave,
  • company adoption leave,
  • company shared parental leave,
  • company paternity pay, and
  • childcare vouchers.

We also offer discounts with Haven Holidays Partnership, Hewlett Packard, Indesit and Hotpoint.

Learning never stops

We provide support to help you achieve your goals through our performance management process. We understand that direction is important, so we’ll give you the tools, support and know-how to develop in your role. We believe that’s the best way to maximize your achievements and, as a result, the support we provide to our clients and beneficiaries.

Your development is at the heart of our culture. It contributes to an engaging and positive workplace for everyone, provides opportunities to reward and recognise you, and helps us to deliver a differentiated service.

Our success — and that of our clients and beneficiaries — depends on our people, and we take your development seriously.
