Employees have access to a great pay, reward and benefits package in recognition of their valued contribution. We aim to offer a range of benefits to attract new, and retain existing, employees who can help us shape a better place to work, and a better world.
Employees of the University are provided with access to a defined benefit occupational pension scheme. There are two main schemes available, Retirement Benefits Plan (RBP) and Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS).
The STAR Scheme allows managers to reward staff via a Performance Award (annually) or a Recognition Award (real time), for instances of exceptional performance and contribution in their role.
