Our people are our passion
We love to invest in our Rawnet family and as such there are many benefits to joining our team. So whether you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle through Vitality Private Medical Insurance, have flexible working hours or compete for the title of Office Champion on the office PS4, at Rawnet there is something for everyone.
Rawnet has an well-earned reputation within the digital industry and it’s all thanks to our incredible team who do some pretty wonderful work for our awesome clients. We want to reward our team with a range of benefits to suit everyones’ needs and as such we are constantly evaluating the perks that we offer. The best perk, however, is working with a tight team of talented, forward thinking friends!!
Work-life balance 🧘
Remote & Hybrid Working
Why spend time travelling into the office when you can do your best work from, well... anywhere. We all know we work well from home and can still feel just as much part of the team. Don’t get us wrong, we love the office for those times when we want to collaborate face to face, grab lunch together or pop to the pub after work, but it is so liberating to have the choice.
Whilst we are available during our core client service hours, we believe in the importance of balancing the commitments in our personal lives with the demands of our work life. Flexible working is a way of working that suits everyones’ needs.
After 3 months’ employment, you will be eligible to utilise our full Flexible Working Benefit (for part-time working request).
Vitality’s Private Healthcare Plan gives us fast access to high-quality private medical facilities and treatments, at a time and place that suits us. It also plays an equally important role in helping fund the cost of early diagnosis and treatment of acute conditions.
Vitality is positively different to other insurers, as they realise that health risk is closely linked to people’s lifestyle behaviour. Vitality incentivises and encourages members to be healthier through their discounts and rewards programme. You will be eligible to join our PMI plan on the completion of your review period.
Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
You will have unlimited access via your Vitality membership to a confidential telephone advice service, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This includes debt counselling, legal and financial advice, and up to six confidential, face-to-face counselling sessions per year.
Positive impact day
Feel good by doing good. Our values focus on being real, authentic, having an open mind and creating long term positive impact. As a business this is what we believe in and what we align to for our clients and our team. We wanted to go one step further by empowering everyone with one day a year to engage in making a difference that’s authentic to each of us. Deliver a talk in a school, get involved in a specific cause or run a charity fundraising event close to your own heart.
Work hard, play hard 🎮
Christmas and Summer parties
Our work parties are legendary and now you can join in the fun every Summer and Christmas. We also have a very dignified company picnic during Royal Ascot week.
Our social committee has a shared passion for creating a social, collaborative and engaged workplace. Let us know if you would like to join the committee or if you have any ideas around socials, charity and fundraising events, remote/office culture and wellbeing.
Use of our office PlayStation and pool table
Step away from your desk, take a break from work and fully immerse yourself in gaming at lunch time or a game of pool if that’s more your thing!
23 days holiday per calendar year, in addition to all public and bank holidays. Our holiday year runs from 1st January to 31st December.
Birthdays off - woo hoo!
Who wants to work on their special day?! In addition to your holiday entitlement, we encourage you to take a day off on your birthday. Just make sure you save a slice of cake for us!
Annual leave accrual
After 2 years’ service, all employees are eligible for annual leave accrual. This will be accrued at a rate of 1 day per service year thereafter, up to a maximum of 5 additional days.
Rawnet is shut between Christmas and the New Year, so we can all enjoy spending time with our loved ones.
Every day’s a school day 🧠
We’ll champion you not only to excel at your job but also to develop a shedload of skills along the way to add even more strings to your bow. We each have 12 dedicated Learning & Development days a year, a personal development plan and a training budget. We’ll also pay for your tickets to travel to world-class industry conferences to keep your skills funky and fresh.
Lightning talks are delivered by anyone about anything. The talks last between 5 and 15 minutes, followed by questions and a discussion. Typical subject areas are; interesting work we’ve done; interesting things we’ve learnt; what we actually do day-to-day. Feel free to make suggestions!
We believe working with fresh new talent creates a long-term, positive impact here at Rawnet. We work with students looking for work experience and interns looking to kickstart their careers.
Aviva Pension scheme
You will be automatically enrolled after a 3 month qualifying period to our workplace pension if you: Earn over £10,000 a year; are aged 22 or over; and are under State Pension age. The payments into your pension are:
- Your contribution - 5% of your pensionable pay.
This will be taken directly from your pay and will appear on your payslip.
- Our contribution - 3% of your pensionable pay, increased to 5% after 5 years’ service
This will be paid directly to the pension provider.
You’ll have access to the BenefitHub, a lifestyle benefits company offering the world’s largest selection of employee discounts, voluntary benefits and rewards.
After 3 year’s service, you will be eligible to join our life assurance policy. The purpose of life assurance is to make financial provision for your dependents should you die while in your employment; the policy generally pays a one-off sum of money (3 x your annual salary) to a beneficiary, or beneficiaries, named by you. You’ll also have access to a bereavement, grief and stress helpline.
Enhanced parental pay
For maternity pay, after 1 years’ service, you will be entitled to 8 weeks full pay, with the remainder at statutory pay. For paternity pay, after 1 years’ service, you will be entitled to 2 weeks full pay.
Employee referral programme
We know from experience that referrals are always successful here. The Employee Referral Programme is an opportunity for us all to be involved in building our talented team. If you refer a candidate who we employ on a full-time permanent basis, on completion of their review period we will add £1,000 to your gross pay.
Personal development and progression are incredibly important to us at Rawnet. Ongoing training and mentoring are integral to every individual's development plan, which is incorporated into the quarterly reviews we carry out with each member of our team. We encourage everyone to be ambitious and strive to get to the next level in their career with us. There is no glass ceiling! The job is what you want to make of it and we will support you every step of the way.
Good to knows 🤔
Ok so you’d hope we’d have the basics covered, but for full transparency:
Salary benchmarking & reviews
We benchmark salaries on an annual basis and review everyone's salary biannually.
Collaborative office space
We have an inspirational work environment with that relaxed cafe vibe for fostering interaction and innovation, desks are so 2019! There's also free parking nearby.
We’ll meet quarterly as a company, whether in the office or over zoom, for our quarterly company updates from the MD.
Kudos & Quarterly most excellent
The impact of saying “thank you” for a job well done can change the way people feel about themselves and their work. This nurtures a sense of belonging. Spreading positivity real-time. Rawnet Kudos enables you to celebrate the moments that matter - as they happen. You have the opportunity to highlight, recognise and say thank you to anyone in the team - instantly. The more Rawnet Kudos you receive the higher up the leaderboard you travel. Our ‘Rawnet Quarterly Champion’ will be announced at our next quarterly company meeting and will get to choose between an extra day off or a £250 voucher.
You’ll receive an invite to complete our employee satisfaction survey on a biannual basis. Each question allows us to monitor our internal satisfaction levels and create actionable responses.
Mental Health First Aid Champions & Wellbeing Strategy
Key members of our leadership team are trained as mental health first aiders and we have an integrated wellbeing strategy.
At Rawnet, we like to give exceptional people the opportunity to develop their digital career and expand their skill set – allowing our teams to do outstanding work for our fantastic clients.
Phew. That list was tiring but is by no means exhaustive. In truth, the main benefit you’ll get is working within a fun-loving company brimming with intelligent and innovative digital experts.
