Zenith Benefits

What are the benefits of working for Zenith Trust?


We understand that it’s our people, who make our schools great places to work and develop professionally. So, in addition to development, and career progression, Zenith staff also have access to a wide range of benefits and rewards, including:


  • Benenden Healthcare membership
  • VIVUP 24/7 Employee assistance programme
  • VIVUP rewards platform
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • In house staff counselling and supervisions
  • Access to Zenith Institute
  • Zenith Awards programme
  • Zenith health and wellbeing annual calendar of events
  • Eye sight testing
  • On site flu vaccinations
  • Access to Teachers Pension Scheme and Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Access to onsite gym facilities


Our Trust places great emphasis on staff wellbeing, and we therefore have a robust Mental Health and Well-Being Policy, which includes initiatives such as:


  • an extensive calendar of events throughout the year focusing on physical, financial, and mental health and well-being;
  • mental health support via counselling services and mental health first aiders;
  • free private healthcare through Benenden and access to 24/7 counselling services, alongside wellbeing resources through VIVUP;
  • access to occupational health professionals who provide support to schools to help employees stay in work, or to return to work, after experiencing mental or physical health problems. 


We want to make sure our staff feel valued and recognised for their hard work and dedication, and our Staff Reward and Recognition Policy outlines that commitment.


The Trust is committed to attracting, developing, and retaining the highest quality staff. Vital to pursuing this aim is the recognition of employees for exceptional performance, and contributions.  Staff are encouraged to acknowledge the work of others, and to let them know that their contribution is appreciated through informal and personal recognition.


Recognition is given through the performance management review process, the Zenith recognition awards, attendance awards, and long service awards.
