At QinetiQ, we are committed to attracting and retaining the best talent in the market and our salary, benefit and reward scheme is designed to making sure we achieve just that. Our reward scheme also means that you can share in the company's success, as well as be rewarded for your own.

We offer a highly competitive salary and benefits package to all our employees: our basic salaries are very attractive as we constantly review what’s happening in the market.

Your Benefits - an overview

As a QinetiQ employee, we’ll give you access to a great range of Flexible Benefits and Employee Savings.

We use an external provider to host our 'Benefits+' system; the internal, online tool which makes browsing the Flexible Benefits we offer and taking advantage of the hundreds of discounts available to you, quick and easy to do.

The system is accessible outside of the QinetiQ intranet, which means our employees can save money whilst shopping online at the weekends, or browse their flexible benefit options in the comfort of their own homes.

Flexible Benefits

We recognise that saving money is important to everyone; that’s why we offer our employees a range of flexible benefits which can be tailored to meet an employee’s family needs and budget. We have ensured that all of the prices offered are at a competitive rate.
