Perks of the job

What do you get?

Apart from getting to work with some really cool people, you'll also get:

  • The campus experience
    • Each of our campuses is like a mini town. You're never more than a 30 second walk away from a café, bank, Post Office, shop, gym, bar, or restaurant. There's even a Day Nursery.
  • Staff discounts
    • You’ll get 10% off meals in SU owned venues, free guest list entry for all of our events and you'll be invited to our annual fancy Summer Ball
  • Student discounts
    • You can buy an NUS student card and sign up to Unidays, so you can still pretend that you’re still a student and get access to loads of discounts, including ASOS, Amazon, Apple and other places not beginning with A.
  • Generous holiday allowance
    • To start with you’ll 23 days annual leave to book as you want to.  You’ll also get the 8 public holidays off.  We close between Christmas and New Year AND you get your birthday off as well :)
  • Excellent pension scheme
    • You can join the Universities Superannuation Scheme.  You’ll pay 8% of your wage into your pot, we’ll pay in another 18% for you. Bargain.
  • Paid volunteering opportunities
    • As well as all the time off you get, you can spend up to 35 hours a year working on the volunteering project of your choice.  You can join in with one of our in house projects, or choose your own.
  • Loads of wellbeing support
    • We think that having healthy and happy staff is really important.  You can get involved in Knit and Natter, book club, or running club to get out of the office. You can get involved in Just Play if you're sporty and get some exercise on your lunch break.
  • Opportunities for development
    • You’ll be supported to develop in your role and beyond it, with formal and informal development opportunities for all staff
  • Breakfast on Mondays
    • Every Monday we hold a team talk in the SU Bar for everyone to catch up. There's tea and coffee and chance to catch up with all things SU to start your Monday off right.
  • Loads of socials
    • We do Friday drinks, payday lunches, team building days, nights out in town and at the cinema.
