As well as competitive salary, training and lots of opportunity to grow, we recognise the importance in nurturing a happy and healthy team and have pulled together an exceptional – very long – list of ‘work perks’ to really look after you, both at home and at work to support your wellbeing
Health & Wellbeing
Health & Wellbeing
After successful completion of three month probation, permanent employees are enrolled on a Westfield Health Plan where you can receive wellbeing support, such as a 24 hour advice line and counselling. You are also able to claim contributions towards optical, dental, chiropody, chiropractor, consultations and therapy treatments.
24/7 employee assistance line
All Rudding Park employees are eligible to access the Hospitality Action’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is an assistance line supported by a comprehensive care package of services and beneﬁts that takes a holistic approach to employee welfare. Like the industry it serves, the assistance line is open 24/7, 365 days a year and includes a translation service for over 170 languages. The benefits available include access to personal counselling, legal guidance, addiction support, debt advice, parenting helpline, elder care helpline and a whistleblowing service.
Cycle to Work Scheme
Rudding Park is part of the cycle to work scheme and permanent employees can use a unique link to apply through Rudding Park. By enrolling on the scheme through a recognised retailer (using the Rudding Park unique reference) and following approval through payroll, salary sacrifice then commences over the hire period (usually 12 months). The salary sacrifice is made prior to Income Tax and National Insurance contributions and, as a result, employees pay less of both.
Mental Health First Aid
Mental health first aid is a training program that teaches people how to help others by recognising and supporting colleagues who may be developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. This internationally recognised course helps to create a more positive workplace culture. The aim is to support and direct employees to the appropriate professional - there are a number of staff within Rudding Park who are trained Mental Health First Aiders and these can be identified through line managers or lists on noticeboards.
Company will pay 3 days of sick pay annually at normal daily rate to all permanent staff. To be eligible you must have completed a year’s employment with the company on 1st November.

The pension scheme is with Standard Life. Employees must put in a minimum of 5% and company will put in an additional 3%.

Rudding Park is always keen to support the local community. As one of the largest employers in the Harrogate area, with over 250 employees, we have a great team with a diverse range of skills and together a real sense of passion to do our bit.
This passion to make a difference was the inspiration behind the Rudding Park Volunteer Scheme. The scheme provides the Rudding Park team with the opportunity to partner with a local charity who they visit once a month over the period of a year to support in any way they can.
The Rudding Park Volunteer Scheme is a ‘win win’. It’s a fantastic chance for us to support a range of worthwhile causes at the same time as investing in the personal development of our team. It’s a chance to:
- Make a difference
- Be part of a community

- Gain confidence
- Meet new people
- Change of scene
- Sense of achievement
- Obtain insight into how other organisations work
- Take on a challenge
