An important factor in your consideration of career opportunities with any company must be that portion of your total compensation that will help you build financial independence and provide protection against the unexpected for the years ahead. Salary is only a part of a well-developed compensation program. As a P&G employee, you receive more than just a paycheck. Total compensation includes your pay (base salary), benefit programs like medical insurance, life insurance, retirement plans, as well as stock purchase programs and other forms of recognition.
We believe our salaries should stand out from the crowd and that is why we apply two principles when defining our salaries:
- We pay competitively: We review our salary ranges each year through benchmarking with the finest companies that compete with P&G for market share and people and ensure our salaries are competitive.
- We pay for performance: Salary increases happen steadily throughout your career and will vary based on your performance progression: Each employee has their own salary plan to correctly reward each individual contribution.
- Holiday Entitlement
In addition to bank holidays, new hires benefit from:
- 24 days paid holiday (UK)
- 23 days paid holiday (Ireland)
Paid holiday increases with duration of continuous service.
- Employee Share Ownership Plan
One of P&G’s core values is Ownership. Subsequently, we do encourage stock ownership and have therefore put in place an incentivizing share purchase plan.
- Christmas Parcel
Employees are provided with a gift of a Christmas Parcel in December each year.

street favourites to the big supermarkets and smaller retailers, you can get a discount every time either through online cashback, or reloadable saver cards.
- Competitive Contributory Pension Scheme
Upon becoming a permanent P&G employee, an individual account (your retirement account/pension fund) will be set up on your behalf.
We offer a simple and flexible way of saving for your retirement, by aiming to help you secure a lifetime pension when you retire.
- Employee Assistance Programme
Confidential telephone advice and/or one to one counselling sessions are available for employees, and their immediate family. This is provided by an independent provider on many subjects including legal, financial, personal problems, etc.

In the interest of both the Company and employee, P&G offers options such as reduced work schedule, personal leave of absence, flexible working schedule, and working from home, to enable our employees to balance these commitments.

We know that increasing globalisation requires connections far beyond traditional schedules. We encourage employees and their managers to focus on personalised flexibility, designed to deliver business results and enable employees to grow their careers while meeting personal needs. This can impact where, when and how work gets done.
Working from Home
P&G employees have the flexibility to work from home, and an increasing number of us are enjoying the benefit of working from home, as and when we need to. We think this helps to balance both business and personal life.
