Reward and Benefits

Life at Ulster Bank

Taking care of our people is important to us

At Ulster Bank, we structure pay in a flexible way and provide a wide range of benefits that work for you.

As well as your base salary, we’ll give you benefit funding and pension funding. This can be used on a wide range of options which can be adjusted to suit your needs.

You’ll have access to benefits like retirement savings plans, healthcare schemes, insurance, and the chance to buy additional holidays and exclusive discounts from big retailers.

There’s something for everyone, and we make it easy to take advantage of those options through RBSelect. We’ll put you in control, and you can choose how your pay works best for you.

If you decide the benefits aren't for you, then you can choose to take your benefit funding and pension funding as part of your salary. And we’re totally flexible as you can change your choices each year.

Planning for your retirement

We operate pension schemes around the world, and you can take advantage of the benefits these plans provide. When you join, you’ll have online access to information about your pension benefits, including the ways in which we can help you save and plan for your retirement.

Discounts on products and services

'Your Offers' is our discount programme which gives you offers on a range of products and services. This is packed with special offers from brands like Apple, HP and many more - all giving generous discounts on everything from holidays and gifts, to electricals and cars.

Charitable Giving

We encourage our people to get involved in and support the local community, we make it easier for you to find out about volunteering and fundraising opportunities and support those that do.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is an easy way for you to regularly donate to your favourite charity directly from your salary. And the bank picks up all the administration fees so that all the money you donate goes to charity.
