Childcare and family benefits
We understand the need for a good work-life balance, so where possible we operate a number of flexible working schemes including job-shares and flexible working hours.
Alongside flexible working, we offer a number of benefits to help you manage your family commitments. We offer enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption schemes dependent on your length of service.
We run a childcare voucher scheme with Computershare Voucher Services to help you make savings on your childcare costs.
We also have a 74-place on-site registered nursery run by qualified and experienced staff. The nursery is located at Broomgrove Road at our Collegiate Campus and is open from 8am to 6pm (Monday–Friday) throughout the year. It provides childcare for children aged six months to five years and is used by our staff, students and the general public.
The nursery means you can continue your work or studies secure in the knowledge that your children are being cared for in a safe, happy, relaxed and stimulating environment. Our qualified and experienced staff provide a wide range of activities to ensure that children receive a good pre-school education.
From January 2015, the nursery will be based in fully redesigned and refurbished premises as a result of a major investment by the University.
