Rewards and Benefits

Since we’ll be asking you to give your all to delight our customers and transform our business for the future, it’s only fair that we give you lots in return. So, along with bags of support and opportunity, we offer one of the best rewards and benefits packages around.

Here’s a quick look at what’s in it for you.


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

Payroll giving

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


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.


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.

Share schemes

A great way to share in the success of the Kingfisher group – 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 Share Incentive Plan.

Discount card

The one we all love! 20% off in B&Q stores and when shopping on plus extra discounts for you, friends and family from time to time.


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. And we give you a badge, to boot!

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.

Childcare vouchers

We know how much childcare can cost, so we offer childcare vouchers as a way to ease the burden.


health cash plan

You and your family will have access to our healthcare cash plan. You can use this to claim money back to help with things like dental check-ups, optician visits and new glasses, chiropodists, physiotherapy and more.

private medical

All SSO 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.

Vision Express

You and your family will be entitled to various discounts on sight tests, spectacles and contact lenses.

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 if you’re part of our pension.
