    The University of Oxford is an established and stable employer. As well as the pay and benefits listed in the advertisements, it can also offer: Training - we train staff, both in the skills needed for starting the job, and to develop afterwards. If you don't have all the skills listed in an advert (e.g. computer packages), but know that you are a quick learner, it is worth asking if training might be available. Working hours - departments may be able to be flexible about working patterns to help staff combine work with responsibilities at home. Even if advertisements give full-time hours, this can sometimes be adjusted, and it is always worth asking. For instance, term-time-only working can sometimes be accommodated. Pensions - all staff are able to join the University's final salary pension scheme, which provides excellent benefits on retirement. Disability - if you have a disability, we have specialist staff who can help you to start and stay in work. Childcare - we have three subsidised nurseries for under-fives, subsidised places at some other local nurseries and salary sacrifice and virtual voucher schemes enabling parents to save on tax and/or NI contributions. Parenting - as well as providing the childcare facilities mentioned above, we have generous maternity and paternity leave schemes to help new parents on our staff. Cultural and religious needs - we respect the cultural and religious lives of our staff. If you need time away from work, or special facilities, and can give plenty of notice for arrangements to be made, this will always be considered. Holidays and further benefits - full-time staff receive 38 days holiday and all staff members are allowed free access to the University's first-class sports facilities.
