Pay & Benefits

In addition to competitive salaries, generous leave allowances, staff development and an excellent working environment there are numerous other benefits that contribute to the total reward package for staff which make Edge Hill University an excellent place to work for both existing and potential colleagues. Many of these benefits have been initiated by the staff themselves through engagement via the Staff Partnership Group and the Staff Social and Well-Being Group.


For most staff groups pay is set at a national level and the University adopts the pay agreements negotiated by the sector’s recognised Employers’ Association who facilitate the discussions concerning pay awards between the employers and the recognised trade unions.


Edge Hill University makes a significant contribution to the defined benefit pensions schemes alongside individual contributions, making them a significant part of the pay and benefits package available to staff. As well as providing for a pension, the schemes also make provision for other benefits such as life cover and ill-health retirement.

Academic staff are eligible to join the Teachers’ Pension Scheme whilst other staff are eligible to join the Local Government Pension Scheme. Existing current members of the Universities Superannuation Scheme may continue to contribute to this scheme.

Holidays and Flexible Working Scheme

Providing a work life balance for staff is important to us and we offer generous holiday entitlements and for some staff access to our flexible working scheme.

  • Academic and Management Contracts receive 35* days annual leave per annum
  • Support Staff receive between 22* and 29* days annual leave per annum dependent on grade and length of service. Along with the opportunity, where business needs permit, to benefit from a flexible working scheme.

In addition all staff are entitled to 13 statutory, extra-statutory and concessionary holidays.

*Note: Entitlements are pro-rata for part-time/part-year staff
