In order to improve the work-life balance of staff, the University has a number of family-friendly policies that aim to make working as easy as possible for those with, or about to have, family responsibilities. Guidance for Managers is available to raise their awareness of how they support their team members before, during and after family leave.

Supporting Staff returning from Maternity, Adoption or Shared Parental Leave
The University is committed to supporting the leave and successful return to work of individuals following periods of Maternity, Adoption or Shared Parental Leave. As such, the University Executive Board decided that Schools and Functions should be full reimbursed for the salary costs of staff taking maternity, adoption and shared parental leave; and that part of this reimbursement be used to support the staff member on their return to work.
