Take a look below at some of the flexible benefits you can pick and choose from to create a benefits package that’s right for you at a time that suits you:

It may be a long way off and your pension may not be the first benefit you think about, but we’ve put together an amazing award-winning pension scheme that means we’ll look after you, even when you’ve stopped working here. Now that we’ve got your attention, here are just some of the benefits you could enjoy if you join our pension plan:

  • We don’t just match employee contributions – in some cases we double them.
  • You’ll get 5x life assurance cover to provide peace of mind for you and your family.
  • You’ll benefit from free income protection and enhanced sick cover.
  • You won’t pay income tax on your contributions and if you pay them through salary sacrifice, you’ll pay less tax and national insurance. Take a look here (www.telefonicapensions.com) for more information on our pension plan and why it could be the best in the industry.

As if the benefits above aren’t enough to show how much our employees mean to us, here are just some of our other employee extras you can enjoy:

At O2 we won’t make you choose between your family and career. Life isn’t all about work, so we’ll help you enjoy the best of both worlds with a healthy work/life balance to ensure you won’t miss those special moments.
