Three tech companies offering unlimited holidays for UK functions

If you could create your dream job, what would it look like? Would you like to work at home or in the office? Would you rather have a large team or a small unit? Would you prefer a fixed amount of vacation or unlimited?

One thing most tech workers can agree on is that they favor flexibility. According to a survey by Deloitte, 94% of people said they benefit from having increased freedom in their career.

Of course, flexibility can take many forms. Some companies have flexible working hours with no fixed check-in or check-out times. Others offer employees the ability to work from anywhere in the world.

One interesting (and controversial) benefit is unlimited annual leave or paid time off.

More and more companies are offering employees the opportunity to take as much time off as they want each year. Generally, this means that as long as the employee has met the employer’s expectations and arranged their leave with their team, they are free to take time off whenever they want.

Unlimited vacation doesn’t mean employees can wake up on a random Tuesday and decide they’d rather go to lunch than the weekly budget meeting (sorry!). Instead, politics simply avoids setting hard and fast rules.

Unlimited vacation benefits

There are many obvious advantages to this policy. It’s a great way to attract staff, prevent employee burnout and foster a sense of trust within an organization.

However, if managed poorly, staff can feel guilty about taking time off, the policy can be abused or it can end up increasing anxiety among staff. Some studies have shown that employees tend to take less time off than when they had an upper limit.

Whether you’re for or against this recent employee perk, it looks like it’s here to stay. Here’s a look at three companies operating in the UK that currently offer unlimited holiday, and there are plenty more to discover on the UKTN Job Board too.


In 2020, Oracle was the second largest software company in the world based on revenue alone. Today, the company employs 143,000 people worldwide.

Oracle offers unlimited annual leave to salaried employees. However, employees must get prior approval from their manager so that they are not OOO when the company really needs them. Employees can also request sabbaticals after a certain period of time with the company (depending on their role).

The company is currently looking for a digital email designer for its London office. You’ll work at Bronto Software, which provides a leading marketing platform for retailers and other commerce-focused businesses to generate revenue through email, mobile and social campaigns.

Used by over 1,000 organizations, you will play a key role in the continued growth of Bronto, its day-to-day operations and deliver remote execution services to customers to a high degree of quality. You will also program marketing campaigns and code and test messages/templates for representation.

In fact, it has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to employee benefits. The company has excellent health and wellness benefits as well as brilliant compensation packages.

In 2016, Indeed made a monumental change and began offering employees unlimited vacation days. The company believes that an open annual leave policy gives employees more flexibility and a sense of empowerment. Bryan Chaney, director of global employer branding and talent attraction at Indeed, said at the time, “Not only is it better for people to be able to take time off when they need it… [we] they treat people like adults, they usually behave like adults.”

Right now, there is one Senior Software Engineer – Company paper available in Edinburgh. You’ll be part of the company’s enterprise advertiser team and work across a range of applications designed to help clients get the best performance from their ads.
