Our offer to you

Life at Leicester is highly rewarding. Of course we offer competitive salaries, generous annual leave allowances, pension schemes, great career opportunities as well as high quality campus facilities but lets be honest, everyone says this.

The reality is that we place a real emphasis on team work, collaboration and valuing each and every contribution that every member of staff makes.

We invest heavily in the continued learning and growth of our staff, through a wide range of opportunities: from short courses and in-house programmes to qualification-based and external learning. Whether it is role related development through apprenticeships, coaching and mentoring or a course of post-graduate study, our staff benefit greatly from the many learning opportunities available.

Your well-being is paramount, and this is reflected in our offer including two gyms, halal eating options, and range of employee assistance services. Our commitment to your health includes everything from flower arranging workshops, health awareness workshops to being the first University in the UK to have a workplace menopause policy.
