Employee benefits

At the MS Trust we offer a range of benefits to employees:

Annual leave

You will start with 25 days (28 days for manager roles) of annual leave, plus bank holidays. This increases by one day for each year of service up to a maximum of 30 days (pro rata for part time employees).

Company pension

Company pension with enhanced employer contribution of 5% once employees have completed their probationary period. A salary sacrifice scheme is available.

Death in Service

We offer a tax-free death in service benefit of four times your basic salary, should the unthinkable happen and you die while in our employment (subject to age limit).

Enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption pay

We offer 12 weeks fully paid maternity leave and six weeks fully paid paternity and adoption pay.

Sick pay

Employees are entitled to sick pay at a rate of four weeks per year in the first year of employment, increasing by one week in each subsequent year to a maximum of eight weeks in any one year.

Learning and development

We have a learning and development policy to ensure all employees meet their full potential, with an allocated training budget for each member of staff.

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

We provide a confidential EAP to assist employees with work or personal issues.

Hybrid working

We offer flexible working with approximately 40% of time being spent in the office.


One paid day off a year to volunteer for the MS Trust or another voluntary organisation, which will compliment or add value to your role.

Cycle to work scheme

We offer a cycle to work scheme, which allows members of staff to purchase a new bike through a salary sacrifice arrangement. This allows the staff member to save tax, whilst also spreading the payments over the course of a year.

Free parking

There is free onsite parking.

Good transport links

We are situated in Letchworth town centre, in a beautiful listed building, only five minutes' walk from the train station and local buses. We are only 30 minutes from London or Cambridge by rail.

Season ticket loans

We offer season ticket loans to aid members of staff with the upfront costs of season tickets for travelling to work.

Living Wage employer

The MS Trust is proud to be a Living Wage employer. This means that we are recognised by the Living Wage Foundation as paying a higher level salary than the minimum wage set by the UK government, calculated in relation to the cost of living.
