At Virgin Holidays we work hard, but have rewards in place so that you can play hard too. Our employees receive up to seven return standby flights a year (tax only payable) to a wide range of glamorous global destinations which is more than enough to satisfy the most extreme wanderlust.
Beyond a whole world of travel opportunities, there are a range of other role-specific benefits including: pension plan, private medical plan, life assurance, child care vouchers and holiday purchase. Read on for more information about some of our benefits highlights:
Whether the age you wish to take your pension is a long way off or rapidly approaching, it’s always a good time to start planning ahead financially. The aim of a personal pension plan is to put money aside to provide for you in your retirement. If you want to change jobs before you take your pension, it’s important that a pension plan is flexible and portable. Our Group Personal Pension Plan does this and more.
