Personal and Professional Development
Woodhead has a strong focus on personal and professional development for our staff and offer continuous learning opportunities. Employees participate in regular performance reviews which are designed to identify learning and career progression opportunities though tailored programs.
Woodhead recognises the importance of creating a balance between work and personal commitments. The practice offers flexible working arrangements, a generous paid parental scheme and access for all employees and their families to a confidential Employee Assistance program.
“After four years as a stay at home mum, I was very interested in returning to the workforce in a part-time capacity. However most of the jobs advertised in my field did not offer the flexibility I needed – I wanted to work without compromising the needs of my young family. I was delighted to be offered a part-time role with Woodhead, where my skills and experience are valued, and I am able to work flexible hours”, Penny Stevens, People Platform Consultant
Woodhead offers a range of financial benefits to our employees, including competitive salary packages, leave loading, and salary continuance insurance. We also operate a performance based bonus scheme which is linked to group and office profit. It is a discretionary system managed by the remuneration committee.
