Medical & physiotherapy centre

A benefit of being an employee of Nissan is that you have access to our Medical Centre, which is open from 7am Monday until 11pm Friday, providing 24-hour nurse cover.

We operate an ‘open door’ policy, where any member of on-site staff can attend the Medical Centre for treatment and advice.

The Physiotherapy department is situated within the Medical Centre and has 3 full time physiotherapists and a technical instructor. These facilities provide education, treatment and rehabilitation for muscle or skeletal problems.

Pension plan

Nissan employees are automatically enrolled after 3 months into The Nissan Retirement Choices Plan, a Personal Pension Plan administered by Scottish Widows.

Minimum contribution level guidelines are determined by the Government (currently 3%). The company doubles your contribution to set levels, which depend on your length of service. You can decide how the money in your Pension Plan is invested, and are able to select from a range of different investment funds directly with Scottish Widows

Private healthcare

As a Nissan employee, you will receive private medical insurance through our scheme with AXA. Employees can join the scheme free of charge, and you can also include your partner and dependent children for a small fee paid through your monthly salary.

Once you are a member of the scheme you can access it straight away if you have a health concern and your GP thinks you need a referral. One call to the team and you’re able to see a recognised specialist at a local hospital convenient to you.

Share incentive plan

Nissan’s new Share Incentive Plan (known as SIP) is being made available to eligible UK based employees. We offer Nissan Motor Co Ltd (NML) Company shares for employees to purchase through the government approved tax efficient SIP scheme.

The Nissan UK SIP is a flexible and easy way for you to buy ordinary shares in Nissan’s parent company, Nissan Motor Co. Limited (NML), which is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. It allows you to buy shares in NML directly from your earnings before Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions (NIC) are deducted.

Gym membership

Depending on the site you are based at, you will have access to subsidised gym membership and be able to make use of our sports and social complex. Gym membership is available from as low as £2 per month and you can even get memberships for your whole family.

Nissan Select benefits

Our Nissan Selects Benefits scheme gives all our employees the opportunity to gain access to a whole suite of discounted offers. These includes offers on travel, days out, holidays, breakdown assistance, restaurants, retail, finance, and car schemes. When you join Nissan, you’ll get access to our dedicated website allowing you to search for all the latest offers and discounts, download forms and information and sign up to schemes.

Employee wellbeing

Sponsored by our plant, Man Health offer peer support groups facilitated by men with a lived experience of mental ill-health.

As a Nissan employee you also get access to BEN. BEN is an automotive industry charity, providing support for life for both employees AND their family dependents. A dependent is someone who depends on you financially – this could be a spouse, partner, child, grandchild, parent or someone who depends on you for care.

BEN provides free and confidential online self help, face-to-face support and telephone helpline services.
