In case you hadn’t already guessed, having fun is an integral part of working for first direct. That’s why we have our very own People Experience team who are dedicated to arranging events and activities that really put a spring in your step and a smile on your face. In recent years we’ve had on-site fun fairs, penguins and reindeers at Christmas time and a fantastic 21st birthday party. We also have an annual Amazing People Awards ceremony where our top performers receive recognition for their outstanding achievements.
Become a Sports and Social member and not only do you have access to our fantastic on-site gym, but you can let your hair down for less after all your hard work. With discounted trips to sell out concerts, family days out, spa nights and seasonal parties to name but a few, there really is something for everyone. We're proud to be sponsors of the first direct Arena in Leeds. This gives us lots of benefits such as - access to tickets the day before they go on general sale, free draws for your favourite artists and fast track entrance to the Arena.
The biggest event in the Sports and Social calendar by far is our Summer Family Fun Day. For a fraction of the cost you can enter a top theme park and have access to an exclusive picnic area where our Sports and Social Reps offer entertainment for the little ones in your life. If this isn’t enough, we offer a range of discounts with dozens of other companies from restaurants to hotels and salons to home improvements.
