The Home Loan Deposit Scheme was introduced by Dr Kenny to help staff to climb the property ladder and purchase their first home. Dr Kenny increased the NMW across the company to 23K per annum to give more staff the opportunity to buy their first home and to tackle the struggles faced by first time buyers and the need to save for a deposit.
The Home Loan Deposit Scheme is available to all permanent staff who have over 1 years’ service.
The scheme allows all members of staff to draw funds from their future wages to provide a down payment on a new home. The company will provide the employee with up to 10% of the house value, to be used towards a deposit for their new home.
If the employee is given a salary increase after receiving the loan, they will then start to pay back the loan in instalments using the increased amount to their salary.
If the employee stays with the company for six years their loan will be cleared.
If the employee leaves the company before six years, then they will be expected to pay the loan back.
If the employee receiving the loan wants to start making repayments prior to any potential pay-rises. This will require approval from Senior Management and if agreed a payment plan can be discussed and set up by HR.
