External Discounts

We offer access to a wide selection of discounted products and services including CDs, DVS, entertainment, health and travel.

For area managers and head office employees (grades 5 - 8), you can also take advantage of our Flexible Reward package.


Flexible Reward

Available to area managers and head office employees (grades 5 - 8), Flexible Reward is designed to give you individual choice in the benefits you receive. Our aim is to ensure your benefits are relevant to your personal circumstances and lifestyle. Flexible Reward reflects this by providing you with a Benefits Allowance to spend on your choice of benefits, or if you wish, to take in cash.

We offer the following range of benefits to choose from with varying levels of cover. These products are both competitively priced and often provide levels of cover you would not be able to purchase on the high street.
