Employee benefits

Looking after

our people

At Lily’s Kitchen we believe that everyone should enjoy their time at work. We reward the care our people put into their job, by caring for them in return. Our benefits are designed to make our people smile, allow them to save for their future, and also give back to friends and family. Some start immediately on joining and others after three months in the business.

Paying fair

We are a living wage employer. We’ve always paid our employees well above the Living Wage, but this year we have made it official by becoming Living Wage Certified!

sharing the success

All employees, after 12 months service, are eligible for consideration of an award of shares. This allows our team to be part of the success, and financially benefit from the results of our growing company. Usually, these types of share schemes are purely for the senior team, however at Lily’s Kitchen we are family, and so we recognise the valuable input of all our team in the success of our company.

sharing the success

Everyone at Lily’s Kitchen has a voice, and this is our way of making sure that those voices are listened to. It could be an idea for streamlining a process, fixing a niggle or for helping our local community. We come together each quarter to share thoughts and feedback on our environment, culture and communications.


Our team asked for more flexible working options and we listened. We’ve introduced a flexi-time policy which gives the team flexibility to manage their working hours. The scheme allows our people to be the most productive so their work is not only done, but gets done to the best possible standard whilst maintaining a good work-life balance.

Enjoy some me time

We offer our people 25 days holiday plus 8 days bank holiday for them to enjoy some time to relax and unwind. If you have been at Lily’s for a while will say thank you and give you some more holiday!

Save for the Future

We offer a pension plan with contributions that go beyond what we’re legally obliged to offer. We have the option of a salary exchange scheme and a majority of contributions are defaulted to an ethical fund that reflects our team’s attitudes and needs.

Stay healthy

Our people’s health and wellbeing is very important to us and we offer individual private medical cover as an optional benefit.

Giving back is important to us and every permanent employee gets one paid day a year to volunteer their time to a charity that is in our community and close to our hearts.

Dog friendly

Having our four legged friends at work is incredibly beneficial - it helps us feel more social and relaxed and gives a great opportunity for exercise on nearby Hampstead Heath.
