Jobs at the University of Leicester


Joining a new place of work is an exciting time, but it can also be a busy one - especially if you need to relocate. We'd like to help make your transition as smooth as possible.

For new staff accepting a position at Grade 6 or above, on a contract that is either permanent or fixed-term for two years or more, we can offer financial assistance with the following costs:

  • Removal of furniture and other items
  • Legal and estate agent fees
  • Travel to your new home
  • Other reasonable expenses incurred as part of your move

If you are moving within the UK, you may apply for assistance up to the equivalent of one twelfth of your annual gross salary up to a maximum of £8,000. If you are living abroad at the time of your appointment, a maximum entitlement will be determined by the Director of Finance. We expect you, the candidate, to initiate discussions at an early date.

Please email the Accounts Payable Team for further information and to apply for assistance.

We may also be able to support your move in other ways. Please take a look at our information for staff moving to Leicester (PDF, 225kb) for further details.
