An overview of university policies that support work-life balance

The university is committed to helping all its employees to strike a balance between paid employment and their personal life. To achieve this it offers a range of special leave arrangements and flexible working options which are available to all employees, subject to operational requirements.

This page tells you about your statutory rights and about the additional measures offered by the university to support work-life balance. More information on most of these policies can be found in the Employment Handbook (direct links to relevant sections are below), or contact your link HR manager (link to intranet).
