Additional Information about the University and Staff Benefits
You will join a welcoming, award-winning University known for its renowned standards of teaching and research. Our friendly community of circa 22,000 students come from across the world, while our graduates supply the Black Country with newly qualified professionals for roles in sectors as varied as healthcare, engineering, teaching, and law.
As a university we consider the right attitudes and behaviours to be just as important as experience and skill. Our department philosophy is to keep our customers at the heart of everything we do and we expect our staff to uphold our values of being “diligent, kind and excellent” at all times, linking into the University’s overall vision, strategy and values.
Training and development opportunities
We understand the need to keep developing our staff, not only to meet the needs of their current roles but also to support career development. We offer a wide range of organisational development opportunities to support staff throughout their time at the university.
We have partnered with an external organisation to offer staff a great range of discounts on travel bookings, high street vouchers, gift cards, cinema tickets, days out, leisure activities and your day-to-day spending. In addition, we offer tax-free savings on bicycles through our ‘cycle to work’ scheme.
Our defined benefit pension schemes are a real asset to your peace of mind. Depending on the job you’re appointed to, you will be automatically enrolled into the most appropriate pension option for you.
Employee Assistance Programme
The service is provided by an independent third party free of charge, completely confidential and is available to all staff members and their immediate family members. This short-term counselling method can be very effective for busy working people who may need this additional support at some point in their domestic, personal, or working lives. In addition, our provider also offers access to practical advice and information which incorporates debt information, legal, financial tax information as well as family care and support.
We operate a number of family-friendly policies to support colleagues in maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
