About Telecom Plus Plc


What is it like to work for Telecom Plus Plc

Leadership
Leadership
The company’s Management Team is accessible and approachable, which they believe accounts for their levels of staff engagement. A fun example of this was their Valentine's Cup Cake Day, all for Make-A-Wish. Members of staff could pay to put forward a Director of their choice to deliver a cup cake and personalised message to their Valentine. All day long the Directors, and particularly the company’s CEO, could be seen running up and down the stairs, with cupcakes in hand, flourishing messages!
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
The Company recently trialled a Work Experience Scheme to give local unemployed youths, in the 16-18 age group, the opportunity to experience working life. This trial is now being refined, with a view to offering a 12 week programme, during which youths will have the opportunity to work in administration roles across the Company, albeit mainly in the Data Centre. Each individual will be allocated a mentor and given a travel and meal allowance. The Company also supports private individuals who are playing a part in contributing to the wider community. An example of this is the financial support given to one member of staff, who decided to set up his own domestic violence counselling service.
Fair Deal
Fair Deal
Telecom Plus Plc does not have formal pay grades, individuals can be rewarded with above standard pay increases or where work has been exceptional, with Company Share Options. Whilst every employee upon starting is issued with Company Share Options, exercisable after three years, those who have performed above expectations can receive bonus Share Options. These Share Options are known to be a highly valuable benefit and is a meaningful way of rewarding and incentivising members of staff. The Company also has an Employee Recognition Awards scheme, whereby peers or line managers can put forward someone for going above and beyond the call of duty, for approval by the Management Team. Winners are celebrated on the Wall of Fame and in the Company Newsletter 'OINK!' and receive shopping vouchers. In addition, at the Christmas Party there is an ERA Grand Raffle, and last year, the First Prize was a three day trip to New York, staying in the Waldorf Astoria, with $500 of spending money!
