Our benefits for employees

Performance-related pay is a matter of course for us, as are comprehensive social benefits such as a modular company pension scheme, contributions to capital formation and regular health care campaigns.

All employees can take advantage of the on-site Day Nursery which is a purpose-built facility that can accommodate up to 59 children. The Day Nursery is open five days a week from 7.45am to 6.00pm and provides high-quality care at subsidised rates. The Day Nursery provides an excellent environment which follows a structure of learning, development and care for children from birth to five years old – this is called the Early Years Foundation Stage and enables children to learn through a range of activities.

Olympus provides all staff with the opportunity to participate in a Childcare Voucher Scheme.

Our employer awards

Extensive further training options, international networks and high quality standards have contributed to Olympus being certified as an employer by the Top Employer Institute for many years in the UK and Europe.
