Other leave There are other times where you may feel that additional leave would support what is important to you. We are always happy to hear when our staff would like to give their time to volunteer outside of work, so we offer 2 days of volunteering leave each year to help them do just that! This also includes time to go and donate blood as well. Pets can be part of the family and we recognise that losing a beloved pet can be very difficult. Therefore, we offer 1 day’s pet bereavement leave to support staff during this challenging time. Obviously we understand there is a difference between a dog or cat and a goldfish, but we trust our colleagues and managers to make the right decisions.
