Our Benefits

We offer a comprehensive set of benefits encompassing competitive salaries, final salary pension schemes, work-life balance and development opportunities.

Some highlights of the benefits available include: 


We offer a grading structure based on a nationally agreed single salary spine with salary values which are index linked. 


Holiday_image, We offer an excellent work-life balance through our annual leave entitlements based on a full time minimum of 41 days per annum (including bank holidays).

In order to provide further flexibility on top of our already existing generous annual leave entitlement, colleagues also have the opportunity to buy up to an additional 10 days annual leave (pro rata) per holiday year.


We operate two pension schemes depending on grade – Teachers Pension Scheme and Local Government Pension Scheme and you will be automatically enrolled into the scheme appropriate to your role.

Continuing Professional Development

We anticipate that all colleagues will engage in continuing professional and occupational development to enable them to meet their own and the University’s objectives. Our Organisational Development and Academic Quality teams offer a portfolio of support activities including fee waivers for certain UoC courses.
