Long service awards

Last reviewed on 13 July 2018

Long service awards help celebrate the amazing contribution longstanding colleagues make to Co-op.

If you’re an Insurance or CFSMS colleague your long service award works differently.

Check if you’re eligible

Colleagues with 20, 30, 40 or 50 years’ continuous service are eligible for an award.

There’s no need to apply as eligible colleagues will be contacted automatically with details of their award options.

What you’ll get

You’ll get a long service award brochure through the post before your anniversary. You can choose something from the brochure or receive Co-op gift cards. You’ll also receive a framed Co-op long service certificate.

Your gift depends on how long you’ve worked at Co-op.

  • 20 years’ service: 1,500 points to spend in the brochure or £150 in Co-op gift cards
  • 30 years’ service: 3,000 points to spend in the brochure or £300 in Co-op gift cards
  • 40 years’ service: 4,000 points to spend in the brochure or £400 in Co-op gift cards
  • 50 years’ service: 5,000 points to spend in the brochure or £500 in Co-op gift cards

If you’re retiring

You’ll get extra gift cards and points if you leave with over 20 years’ service. The amount will depend on how long you've worked for Co-op when you leave.

If you’re a manager who needs to apply for a long service award for someone who's retiring, you can fill in a retirement long service award form.

Long service awards for Insurance or CFSMS colleagues

Insurance or CFSMS colleagues with 25 or 40 years’ service are eligible for a Co-op long service award.

What you’ll get

Your gift depends on how long you’ve worked at Co-op.

  • 25 years’ service: £250 worth of vouchers
  • 40 years’ service: £400 worth of vouchers

You can either use this on the Thanks Very Much online shop, or request Co-op gift cards or Love to Shop vouchers, which can be spent in over 20,000 high street stores.

A link to the Thanks Very Much online shop and information on how to request vouchers will be sent to you when you become eligible.
