There are many benefits to working at IPB. Our rewards are competitive compared to the open market. Our Employee Value Proposition not only remunerates competitively and rewards you for what you do well, but we invest in and support your professional and personal growth too. Our employee benefits are designed to help you manage and plan for the future as well as looking after your health, wellbeing and work-life balance.
We offer a competitive base salary and bonus scheme rewarding you for your contribution and operate a Defined Contribution Pension Scheme with automatic enrolment to support you immediately in preparing for your future retirement needs.
For long-term absences of 26 weeks or more income protection is available. For shorter term illness of three days or more, your salary may be maintained with social welfare payments deducted.
Your health is of critical importance to us and a competitive medical allowance is provided to allow you to choose your own medical plan that suits your individual needs. In addition to a healthcare allowance for employees, IPB also provides a generous contribution towards the healthcare plan for dependents.
We are committed to supporting family life and provide several parenting policies as some employees embark on the journey of parenthood. These include enhanced/top-up maternity, adoption and paternity leave. Parental and parents leave are also provided for in line with statutory requirements.
Recognising that time away from work is important, a generous number of annual leave days that increase with length of service are provided. In addition, if you need more time away for whatever your needs are, employees may be entitled to purchase additional annual leave on top of their current entitlement up to a maximum of eight days in the calendar year.
Employees can avail of paid compassionate leave and force majeure for certain personal situations in the event that they arise. For those that require time in preparing for marriage, we will provide an additional 3 days leave to eligible employees. Flexible options extend to job sharing, a daily flexible working schedule and remote working.
Employees have access to special discounts on motor and home insurance products.

IPB offers this benefit through salary sacrifice.
