Bad
  • People don’t get sick pay

    How we know this

    0% of people say they would get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work

    Based on information from 5 job reviews

    Why this matters

    Everyone gets sick sometimes. You should be able to take time off without worrying.

    At a good job you should still get paid if you’re scheduled to work but can’t due to sickness. Your contract should say how many sick days you can take each year.

    This is more than the legal minimum, which says you should only get paid if you are unwell for 4 full days. See Citizens Advice for more details.

Good
  • People are paid market rates

    How we know this

    60% of people are paid average or more than the typical pay for the type of work they do

    Based on information from 5 job reviews

    Why this matters

    Pay can vary a lot between types of job. Employers should be ensuring that the rates their staff are paid are in line with similar roles elsewhere.

  • People recommend their team

    How we know this

    60% of people report that they would recommend working with their immediate team to a friend

    Based on information from 5 job reviews

    Why this matters

    A good job means enjoying the place where you work.
