Enjoying working at GB Group
We host a number of company events throughout the year, some social, some a mix of business and pleasure.

Since 2006 GB Group has been involved in raising money for a number of charitable organisations, the beneficiary is chosen by our employees and is therefore very close to peoples hearts and very well supported by staff, customers and suppliers. We have completed a GB Challenge since we started our fund raising initiative. It is always a physically enduring challenge that tests both body and mind. Our vision for the GB Challenge is to raise money for our chosen charity by maximising the effectiveness of our greatest asset, our people! We do this by inviting all employees to take part in the challenge. The event encourages all GB Group employees to work together as a team towards a common goal, whether that is being involved physically or in a very valuable supporting role.
New Starters receive 23 days holiday a year, increasing to 26 days dependent upon length of service.
All employees are invited to join the scheme on its renewal date each year, enabling you to share in the success of GB Group. The scheme provides employees with the opportunity not only to take part in an extremely tax efficient savings scheme but also to acquire GB Group plc shares on preferential terms. You can save up to £250 a month.
