Get access to a free tastecard trial membership!

Our benefits are your slice of the Mitie pie, you’re entitled to them, you deserve them, and we really want to encourage you all to make the most of them. This is particularly important in light of the cost of living rises, which affects us all, and everyone is looking for ways to save cash or help our salaries go further.

Last week, we shared a great new benefit ‘Coffee Club’, which you can find out about here. This week, we’re pleased to have another free trial to share with and support you; we’ve partnered with tastecard.

tastecard is a benefit that we offer on Choices, our flexible benefits platform and the annual window will be opening in March 2023. In the meantime, we are excited to be able to offer all UK Mitie colleagues a free trial of this benefit from today, 1 February, to be able to enjoy the discounts on offer early.
