Fleet Alliance provides school staff salary sacrifice scheme

Date: 28 May 2024   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Unity Schools Partnership has appointed Fleet Alliance to offer salary sacrifice EVs to qualifying members of staff.

The multi-academy trust has around 2,800 members of staff, working at 35 educational establishments in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, and Havering in London.

Almost all the partnership's staff are now eligible to lease an EV through Fleet Alliance, on condition that they have passed their probationary period, are over 21 and the salary sacrifice deduction does not take their revised gross pay below the minimum living wage.

Unity deputy CEO and director of finance Sarah Garner said: "We see this as a valuable retention and recruitment tool that has been very well received to date amongst staff members.

"One of our legal obligations as a multi-academy trust is to report on environmental initiatives through the streamlining energy and carbon reduction (SECR) report. And offering electric cars through salary sacrifice is one of our carbon-reduction measures under its terms

"[Fleet Alliance] have been great in marketing the benefits of the scheme to members of staff, and attending live events so that we can openly discuss the scheme and address some of the myth-busting issues that exist around electric cars."

Fleet Alliance CEO Andy Bruce said: "In our opinion, there has never been a better time for organisations who want to provide a wider range of benefits for their members of staff to take advantage of the salary sacrifice benefits that exist on electric cars. Our forward order banks certainly prove that this is the case."
