At Nissan Maple Cross we like to take care of our employees. From your very first day with us, and across all of our departments, we will reward your time and hard work with a compelling package of employee benefits, including a competitive salary and a company car.
Employee Car Ownership Scheme
Working at Nissan you have the option of taking part in the Nissan Employee Car Ownership Scheme; where employees can own Nissan vehicles with ownership costs wrapped into one very low monthly payment.
The Nissan Retirement Choices Plan is a Personal Pension Plan and is administered by Scottish Widows. You will be automatically enrolled into the plan on completion of 3 months’ service (subject to meeting legislative criteria). You will receive confirmation from Scottish Widows that you have been enrolled. You can ask to join the Pension early and or still join if you have not been automatically enrolled (due to not meeting the criteria).
The Pension Plan is designed to provide savers with a fund in retirement. This fund can be taken as an income and includes a tax free cash lump sum from age 55. The fund is made up of contributions paid by you and the Company each month over your working life. Contribution levels are determined by the Government, but you can pay more in order to build up a bigger fund. The Company double your contributions up to set levels. You can decide how the money in your Pension Plan is invested, and are able to select from a range of different investment funds.
Nissan Maple Cross offers flexible working guidelines for all employees. The core hours for NMGB are 10:00am to 4:00pm. To give you an example of how these work, if you start work at 7:45am, you could finish at 4:00pm. On the other hand, you could start at 10:00am and finish at 18:15pm. On Fridays, you may start work at 9.00am and still finish at 4.00pm, providing that you have worked your contractual weekly working hours as a minimum. We also allow employees to work from home for up to 1- 2 days per week if it has been agreed with your line manager.
All employees are entitled to free life assurance cover for a minimum of two times their annual salary from their first day of employment. This amount increases to four times your annual salary when you join the pension plan.
As a Nissan Maple Cross employee, you are entitled to private medical insurance. This insurance may just cover you, or it may also cover your partner and family. Depending on the grade of cover you choose, your insurance can be traded up or down and based on your preferences and you can choose to add one or more of the following benefits to your overall benefits package:
- Extra holiday days
- Cycle to Work scheme (save money on a new bike and spread the cost)
- Retail vouchers
- Dental insurance
- Travel insurance
- Technology purchase (savings on phones and laptops)
