It pays to join Biffa

Additional family leave or family friendly leave

We are excited to offer eligible employees their child’s first (adoptive) birthday and first day of school as paid leave, recognising these can be significant moments in a parent’s life; ones they don’t want to miss out on.

Compassionate leave

We also offer employees paid time off for those moments which are unplanned, including compassionate and dependency leave.

And more...

Your wellbeing

Our dedicated Wellbeing team delivers a range of initiatives to support our employees’ physical, mental and financial wellbeing. We also have a network of Mental Health First Aiders who provide advice and an empathetic ear to anyone needing support. This is backed up by a free and confidential Employee Assistance Programme, available to all employees and their immediate family. Employees also benefit from wellbeing-related benefits such as discounted gym membership and health cash plans. 

Electric & hybrid car salary sacrifice scheme

At Biffa we are very excited to offer our salary sacrifice scheme for fully electric and hybrid cars. The scheme is all inclusive in that it covers insurance, breakdown cover, tyre replacement and any servicing the vehicle needs.


The Cycle2Work scheme is a Government-approved salary sacrifice initiative allowing you to hire a bike and accessories from your employer for the purpose of cycling to work. The hire is free of tax and national insurance which means you can make savings whilst keeping fit, reducing your carbon footprint and spending less time in your car.

Retirement planning

For employees planning to retire who provide their contractual notice, we offer 1 day's paid leave to support their retirement planning. For employees who provide 52 weeks’ notice of their retirement, we offer an additional 5 days' holiday.
