Professional Services


The University has established a generous range of pension benefits that are available to its members of staff.

Pension schemes


For members of staff on Grade 6 and above, the University participates in the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) and eligible jobholders in these grades are automatically enrolled into USS. New staff joining USS at the University of Leicester are automatically entered into the University’s Salary Sacrifice arrangement.

New members of staff who were previously members of the NHS Pension Scheme, may be able to re-join this scheme whilst working for the University, subject to the rules of the NHS Scheme. Members of staff interested in exercising this option should let Payroll and Pensions Operations know by emailing immediately upon joining the University.
