We take great care of our people, from rewards and remuneration through to professional and personal development. We believe in sharing our success and we understand that there’s more to life than just work.

Here’s a general guide to:

Of course, in an organisation as diverse and progressive as ours, benefits, terms and conditions sometimes vary between companies and countries.

Financial benefits

Share/stock plans and ‘save for shares’ schemes

These enable our people to own a stake in our businesses and are operated through our parent company Pearson.

Pension and life assurance

UK employees can save for the future through the Pearson Group Pension Plan, benefiting from life assurance cover of up to four times their salary.

Outside the UK, we provide competitive local pension and life assurance provisions.

Company loans

We offer interest-free loans for travel season tickets.


We offer competitive paid holiday allowances in line with the country of hire.

Health, well-being and family life

Generous leave for working parents

For working parents we offer generous leave arrangements, which include enhanced maternity leave, paternity leave and parental leave.

Free private medical insurance

Our employees enjoy free private medical insurance, with concessionary rates for immediate family members.

Subsidised gym membership

To help you stay fit and healthy, we offer subsidised membership of selected gyms close to most of our locations.


All FT employees and their immediate families have access to a confidential service providing help and advice on financial, emotional, health and legal issues.

PeopleLine is paid for by the FT but managed by an external company to ensure complete confidentiality.

Other facilities

Some of our larger locations also offer an occupational health service and on-site restaurant and dining facilities.
