Rewards and benefits

Because being recognised for a job well done is important to you

Being recognised is important to us too. That’s why we’ve develop a package that recognises the vital contribution you make to the AXA business.

Pay and bonus - linked to your performance

The level of your pay and bonus awards is in your hands, and both are linked to your performance and the company's performance. Your pay is reviewed annually and you'll also have the potential to receive a bonus award.

Holiday - 28 days after 5 years plus option to buy/sell

Dependent on your level and length of service, you'll enjoy between 23 and 28 days' holiday each year, plus any Bank Holidays. We also offer you the additional flexibility to buy (up to 5 days) and sell (up to 3 days) holiday.

Pension - generous AXA matching of your contributions

You'll be automatically enrolled into our Defined Contribution (Money Purchase) pension scheme aimed at helping you plan and save for your future, whatever your age. 

Please visit our pensions website for more information.

If you are joining AXA Assistance please contact HR for more information.


As a member of our pension scheme, you'll automatically receive a lump sum death in service benefit for your dependants (this will be lower if you decide not to join the pension scheme).

Private Medical Insurance - cover for you and your dependants

You may, depending on your role and its level within AXA, be eligible for Private Medical Insurance or a reduced rate for you and your dependants.

Company car - choose a car based on your lifestyle and budget

Depending on your role and its level, or your need to travel for your job, you could be eligible to join the company car scheme or opt for an annual cash allowance instead.  We offer a wide range of vehicles over 36 or 48 months so you can select a vehicle to suit your budget/lifestyle.  Also those not eligible for a car can access a company car via our flexible benefits programme.  Our Company car scheme won the ‘Best car and travel benefits’ award at the 2013 Employee Benefits Awards.

Season Ticket loans - financial support for your travel to/from work

From the moment you start, we offer an interest free loan scheme to help you buy season tickets for travel.

My Benefits@AXA - your benefits in your hands

My Benefits @AXA is our flexible benefits system. It gives you the chance to choose the benefits which best suit your situation. Here are some examples of what you are able to pick from:

  • Holiday Flex. You can elect to buy additional holiday (5 days) or sell holiday (3 days).
  • Critical Illness. You can take out a critical illness plan for you and your partner.
  • Childcare Vouchers. Save on tax and National Insurance and reduce the cost of your childcare.
  • Cycle to Work Scheme. Get a new bike for a significantly reduced cost by saving on tax and National Insurance (and paying for it monthly through your salary).
  • Benefit Car. Get a brand new car, enjoy hassle free motoring (MOTs, servicing and insurance are all included), and pay for it over 24, 36 or 48 months. You also save on tax and National Insurance.
  • Dental Treatment. You can take out dental cover to pays towards the cost of routine treatment and preventative dental care for you and your family.
  • Pension Flex. You can reduce the amount AXA pay into your pension and either take the cash or put it towards another benefit. Or you may choose to top your pension up and pay for it via salary sacrifice, which will save you on both tax and National Insurance.

Shareplan - share in the success of AXA

Each year we offer an opportunity to invest in AXA's performance and buy shares at a discounted rate. There's no minimum level of investment and you can pay for this over 10 monthly instalments via an interest free loan.

Discounts on AXA products and services

We'll give you generous discounts on AXA products and services, some of which are available to your family.

External discounts - making your money go further

Our My External Discounts site helps to make your money go further by giving you a huge range of discounts and savings at over 1,100 national and local retailers. Discounts are available through online cost savings, top-up cards and cashback through online purchases.

Health and wellbeing - AXA supports you when things don’t go to plan

Your health and wellbeing mean everything to us. That's why we have a number of schemes and benefits in place to support you physically and mentally. As well as free eye sight tests, there's:

  • Be Healthy. An AXA website that helps you reduce your health risks and improve your wellbeing, including features to calculate your health age.
  • Be Supported. Our free and confidential Employee Assistance Programme offers impartial advice, support and guidance on all kinds of medical matters, as well as personal issues such as stress or depression.

AXA Stars - recognising great contributions

We believe in recognising and rewarding great contributions aligned to our behaviours which say what it means to work at AXA.  That's why we created AXA Stars. Through a dedicated intranet site you're able to send a quick eCard to say thank you and or nominate a colleague for an AXA Star cash award!
