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 believe in everyone being able to flourish in an inclusive environment.  Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is at the heart of all we do and we offer opportunity for mutual support and to inform best practice through our staff equality networks.

Your health and wellbeing is our priority.  The holistic approach we take demonstrates our commitment to you as an individual in supporting your ‘whole self’.  You will have access to a comprehensive health and wellbeing on line support toolkit and year round events and activities, that enable you to receive advice, support and guidance tailored to your individual health and wellbeing needs.
