  • Dyslexia Support Group – the group meets regularly to share experiences and our Dyslexia Ambassadors are here to support you
  • Wellbeing clubs – through encouragement and support, our staff have set up a wide variety of hobby clubs, from gardening, to walking, running, crochet and book reading
  • Health and wellbeing newsletter – including the key health awareness days and initiatives for the next two months
  • RED December, Couch to 5K, Tough Mudder – we actively encourage our staff to take part in health and fitness challenges: a bit of competitive spirit never hurts
  • Equality and inclusion – each month, we promote key international religious holidays and human rights awareness days and initiatives

  • Regular health and wellbeing advice in our staff newsletter and staff Twitter feed




Our staff is our most treasured asset and we recognise that a motivated workforce is the only way we can achieve our full potential and reach our goals.

We celebrate positive feedback and customer praise every time we can, to ensure that our staff feel valued, we put a lot of effort and resource into our recognition schemes.

Fundraising and charity work

At MLCSU, we openly encourage our employees to undertake charity work and fundraising activities. With dedicated space in our internal communications, staff can share their initiatives and encourage fellow employees to donate or raise awareness. We also allow additional leave for those who wish to do volunteering.

Some of the charitable organisations who have benefited from our staff’s dedication and generosity include:
