The University aspires to be an "Employer of Choice" and recognises that success is not simply determined by a competitive suite of terms and conditions of service, but by fostering a working environment that protects the physical and mental wellbeing of its staff.

Full details of the University's Health and Wellbeing policy are available on our human resources website. The University is committed to work-life balance and supportive of flexible working arrangements, and the School aims to augment and amplify support to our staff.

The University supports its staff in many other ways:
