What is the Buying/ Selling Annual Leave Scheme?

All employees receive paid annual leave as set out in their contract of employment. This scheme allows employees the flexibility to alter that entitlement, either by buying some additional leave or by selling some of their current entitlement. The scheme is about giving staff some additional choice and flexibility to their total reward package.

Extra holiday may appeal for all sorts of reasons – the chance to spend more time with family, special holidays or time to complete a special project. Alternatively, if employees wish to use less than their full leave entitlement, this scheme gives them the opportunity to exchange some of it for extra salary.
