Benefits introduction
IIG Benefits Team

Your Work

We know that the best work happens when our employees are happy. We take your career progression seriously, providing opportunities for professional development. We also know the importance of taking time off to re-energise yourself.

Insiders Academy

Insiders Academy was launched to make sure our employees learn and develop while they’re with us. We hold multiple training sessions and workshops every month to help you progress in your role at IIG.

MBA Programme
Senior members at Inside Ideas are encouraged to take part in the Insiders Academy MBA Programme. Every 2 years, we support employees with at least 3 years of management experience to get an MBA qualification. They can attend workshops onsite our office at Rosebery Avenue, or enrol in an open university programme of their choice.

Apprenticeship Programme
The IIG Apprenticeship Levy was created so that we can follow through on our mission to upskill our people. This programme teaches staff members new skills, tools and disciplines relevant to their roles. On-the-job learning and support is also delivered onsite Rosebery Avenue via our Insiders Academy Team.


It’s important to take a break, so how will you spend your time off?

  • 25 days’ holiday per year (increasing to 30 days with long service)
  • 8 bank holiday days
  • Additional 5 discretionary personal days

Referral Scheme

Earn £1,000 for referring a new candidate! If you already work with us and have a friend, family member or ex-colleague who you think would fit right in with our new culture and values, you could get a referral bonus.

Please note that you need to refer a candidate who hasn’t previously applied for a role in our company. You’ll receive the taxable referral bonus once the candidate has successfully passed the 6-month probationary period for their permanent position.

Charitable Giving

Charitable Giving
Live & Learn was set up in 2014 as the charitable foundation of Oliver. We have one mission: to alleviate poverty. We do this by supporting educational projects in disadvantaged communities around the world. Education leads to better lives. And we’re passionate about the benefits our grants provide.

How you can get involved

  • Live & Learn fundraising initiatives, like bake sales, beer pong, quizzes and more
  • Giving Back days: Take a day out to volunteer as part of our social change initiative, whether for Live & Learn or another cause.

Tour Dare Ride
Our charity bicycle ride, Tour Dare Ride, was set up in 2018 to remember the lives of two great friends and colleagues, Larry and Jon. Each year, we ride in their honour from London to Bristol to raise money for their families’ chosen charities.
