Our Benefits

At Ascential, we also offer a range of subsidised benefits through our online Handy Benefits portal to lift the weight off your mind.

Health & Happiness

Health and happiness go hand in hand so we keep you fighting fit. Fuel up with the free fruit on offer, join our running club, or perhaps our yoga sessions are more your tempo. A healthy body needs a healthy mind, and we are proud to offer mindfulness sessions to help you work with a positive, relaxed mind-set. And if that doesn't work, our lunchtime massages will.

Other benefit options include:

  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Dental Insurance
  • Health Assessment
  • Eye Care Support

  • Pension

And for those days when solitude is the best remedy, we offer opportunities to work remotely.

Our football and ping pong tables are a great way to have friendly challenges with colleagues in office, while quizzes, end of the month drinks, yearly staff conferences or meeting up in local parks to enjoy the summer sun bring together teams outside the workplace.

We're big on recognising and celebrating hard work at Ascential.

Events are held quarterly to honour those that has smashed targets, stretched creative skills and kept a positive atmosphere. These events include receiving the prestigious award and exciting events from VIP concert tickets and events, sumptuous dinners, and overnight stays in luxury hotels.

The exciting events culminate in a final ceremony where the year's top performers have the chance to jet off on a holiday of a lifetime!

Giving Back

People are our passion and we dedicate ourselves to helping others outside of the business world too.

We are a Patron of the Prince’s Trust and employees have continued to dedicate time to help disadvantaged young people get a better start in life. In 2017, our Million Makers team worked tirelessly to raise £300,820.94 for the Prince's Trust.

Volunteering Opportunities

We offer our employees one paid day off a year to volunteer at a charity of their choice. Giving back is integral to our company ethos, so we encourage our employees to take full advantage of this perk.
