Free modules with the university and up to 6 days study leave on top of an already generous holiday entitlement when taking on a course.
no benefits for assistant staff
Pretty standard for public sector.
As an employee, you can study any Open University course for free.
Generous holidays at several grades (up to 36 days annually); quality pension scheme and, in my experience, will work hard to support staff through personal difficulties. Also tend to pay competitively within the HE sector generally. For certain roles you can earn significantly more in the private sector, and you won't get a company car, private healthcare, big bonuses or shares from the OU. Salaries are also fairly tightly pegged to grades (this is a feature of the sector and union engagement in pay negotiations) so to significantly improve your salary you'll need to be prepared to change job/role.
The holidays were good. As I worked fairly short there, I did not really look into benefits.
There is no benefits package.
It's a good USS scheme. Investments can be chosen according to an individual comfort zone.
The annual leave is very generous (30 days +) and there is flexibility on working hours. The Milton Keynes campus is a very pleasant place to work and if one can afford the time, there are a lot of activities on campus like fitness classes, team sports, choirs, etc.
This place has not very high salaries but you can have very good retirement benefits. No health insurance or discounts in any shop. Good number of days for holidays
