Rewards and Benefits
At DMU, we are committed to creating an environment where our employees enjoy working. We strive to reward and recognise your contributions but also know that you have life beyond work.
Generous annual leave entitlement
In addition to your annual leave entitlement you’ll also receive statutory bank holidays and extra concessionary days (approximately 13 days each year).
Senior staff, academic staff and research staff each receive 35 days, research assistants receive 30 days and support staff receive between 20 and 23 days depending on the grade. These are in addition to bank holiday and concessionary days as well as efficiency days.
Also, for support staff, when you’ve been with us for five years, you’ll also receive an additional five days of annual leave as a thank you for your loyalty.
Work-life balance working options
We offer a range of options to ensure that you benefit from a healthy work-life balance. Depending on your role and responsibilities, you have the opportunity to apply for options such as part-time hours, flexible hours for example nine-day fortnights, parental leave, study leave and sabbaticals.
DMU campus is based in the heart of Leicester, giving you easy access to all the shops and facilities of a cosmopolitan city. In contrast to the city centre, the River Soar which runs alongside campus and nearby Castle Park offer peaceful and picturesque places you can retreat to.
The main campus is within walking distance of a number of convenient public transport links and has close proximity to the Highcross shopping centre and historic Leicester Market. Our faculties also organise a number of theatre, dance and presentations throughout the academic year which employees are to attend and enjoy.
