We offer a variety of wellbeing sessions and programmes ran by our Health and Wellbeing department to help staff keep in shape.
GMAT is a registered employer of the Cyclescheme which is the UK’s most popular Cycle to Work benefit, providing staff members with the opportunity to purchase a bike of their choice, tax-free and national insurance. Staff can save 25-39% of the cost of a new bike and accessories whilst also spreading the
cost. Payments are deducted via payroll over
a term of 12 months.
Christmas Payroll Saving Scheme
We offer staff the ability to put some money
aside through staff payroll each month, this
is then repaid before Christmas.
Employee Assistant Programme
Our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a package of emotional and practical support that provides a range of counselling options, a dedicated coaching service for line managers, financial, legal and practical support and access to online health and wellbeing resources. This free service is confidential and can be used to support staff with any personal or work-related issues that may be affecting their wellbeing.

secure and safe car parking.
Weekly CPD Opportunities
All staff have access to a 1 hour weekly CPD session held on a Friday. We believe that through CPD we can help our employees stay at the cutting edge within their respective fields.
All staff are entitled to one extra days holiday (flexi day) per academic year after completing a 6-month probation. Also, we offer 25 days holiday for all-year-round staff. Pro-rata holidays for term-time staff. We also offer 8 bank holidays for all staff.
Like Cycle to Work, you can offset some of your salary in exchange for a brand new car. We are partnered with Tusker to be able to provide this to our staff. Each of the cars comes complete with insurance, servicing, maintenance and repairs, road tax and breakdown assistance included. All you need to do is add fuel/electricity and top up any vehicle fluids listed in
your vehicle handbook.
