Benefits and discounts

All staff have access to a wide range of benefits, from support and advice at work to discounts on shopping and leisure.

As a member of staff you will automatically get:

  • 26 days paid holiday every year, and approximately 16 days off for bank holidays and days when the University is closed (depending on how many hours you work);
  • generous shared parental, maternity, adoption/surrogacy and paternity/partner leave;
  • sickness benefits increasing with your length of employment;
  • participation in the staff review and development scheme;
  • access to a range of policies promoting work life balance and flexible working.

Organisational Development and Professional Learning (OD&PL), the library, sport and physical activity and staff centre all have their own websites and, if you wish, you can join one of the campus trade unions - UCU, UNISON or Unite.
