Rewards & benefits

Here’s a quick look at what’s in it for you when you join B&Q.

(here’s the main benefits – you’ll find more when you join us!)

We always aim to offer competitive salaries for all roles, and benchmark them regularly, to ensure that we’re getting it right.

Discount card
The one we all love! As you’re also a valued and important customer, we give you a 20% discount on your purchases at B&Q with the intention of helping you and your household save money on your home improvement purchases. Available on purchases made both in-store and online, it couldn’t be simpler to enjoy this saving.

You’ll have access to the award-winning Kingfisher Pension Scheme, and you’ll be able to join at any time. Once in, we’ll put money in alongside your savings to help you plan for your future.

Life assurance
If the worst should happen, it’s important that those close to you have some protection, so we give Life Assurance cover to everyone, enhanced to 4 times your annual salary if you’re part of our pension.

Share schemes
A great way to share in the success you help to create with Kingfisher– you can keep your money safe in our ShareSave scheme for as little as £5 per month, or invest from £10 per month in our ShareBuild Plan.

Childcare vouchers
We know how much childcare can cost, so we offer childcare vouchers a tax efficient way to help working parents cover childcare costs through salary sacrifice.

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) 
It’s important you’re supported when dealing with every day issues and our EAP is here to do just that. We partner with The Retail Trust to offer confidential support and counselling to help you find your way through matters such as health and wellbeing, divorce, legal, debt management or family management.

Health cash plan
Helping you and your family spread the cost of looking after your health by giving you money back on everyday healthcare associated costs, including dental, optical and other treatments such as physiotherapy or chiropody.

Private medical insurance
All Store Support Office colleagues, and some roles in store, are eligible to receive cover with BUPA, but it’s not automatic. You’ll need to apply, because it counts as a taxable benefit.

Payroll giving
If a charity’s important to you, it’s important to us too. We’ll make it easy and tax efficient for you to donate and make a difference.

Annual leave
All work and no play is no fun at all – so everyone here gets a minimum of 6.6 weeks leave, including public holidays.

Long service

To recognise your loyalty, we award with time off and money, depending on how long you’ve been with us.

Work/life balance
Family leave
If you’re eligible, you’ll benefit from Maternity, Paternity and Adoption policies that go above and beyond statutory requirements.

Flexible working
If you’re in a permanent role, you’ll be free to request flexible working – giving you the opportunity to achieve more balance between work and your other commitments.

Shopping discounts
Take advantage of fantastic discounts on every day products and services offered to you just for being a B&Q colleague! From days out to new cars, eye tests to cinema trips, there’s great discounts to benefit everyone.

When you’ve helped us hit a target, it’s only right that you feel the benefit. We link bonus payments to targets, so you’ll always know what you’re aiming for. Bonus applies to eligible colleagues only.
