Futureheads has a unique bonus scheme which celebrates and reflects our collaborative working practices and culture. Each member of the scheme is rewarded based on company performance and individual performance, reflecting their contribution to the wider business’ success through sharing and cross-selling, as well as their own Gross Profit achievements. It’s a bonus scheme which engenders trust and collaboration but which also allows billers to maximise their earnings. Overall, we ensure that your total earnings (including base salary) equate to at least 30% of the Gross Profit you bill. We also ensure that non-billers, including support staff, receive a share of the company’s success, so it’s a truly inclusive scheme.
