Our staff, academics, researchers, language instructors and professional administrators, come from all walks of life and experiences. As a Division, we're committed to supporting them through their period of employment, through ill health, caring responsibilities and the pressures of work.
There are dedicated webpages for parents and carers on the main University site. Our parental leave offer is the best in the UK Higher Education sector, and we have policies in place to help parents before and after the birth or adoption of children. We also recognise that caring takes many forms, and, whether caring for children or adults there is support and advice available for staff on these pages.
The University's Occupational Health Services team provides independent advice to employers and employees concerning the relationship between health and work, and the effects one has on the other.
