All our employees also enjoy a range of benefits regardless of where they are based.

In line with these milestone lengths of service, we also operate a Ten Loyalty Reward program this is a bonus (although we prefer to refer to this as ‘extra spending money’) that is awarded once these milestones are reached.

We want to give our people extra spending money so that they can truly enjoy their sabbaticals.
