Generous public pension scheme and parental leave
It’s great, I have great experience here.
Great pension scheme & flexible working.
For WT PhD student there is no benefits package, but hey - you don't pay taxes either. Stipend increases each year by ~10%.
I am not aware of any benefits available to research staff in any university in the UK, including UCL.
The pension and holiday entitlement are the best things (for researchers - may differ across sectors within the university). Holiday entitlement is 27 days per year plus public holidays plus university closure days - a week at Easter, around a week at Christmas and sometimes extra days. The salary may not be the best but the employer pension contribution is 18%. The other benefit is a huge amount of training available, including excellent careers advice.
Fantastic holidays - annual leave + Uni closure days meant about 42 days off per year. Lots of professional development opportunities, training, and seminars staff were encouraged to attend.
You get to access other University of London places, such as SOAS and KCL for example. Also the student card comes useful for discounts.
Good annual leave including additional 6 closure days per year
Ample annual leave - 25 days a year not including bank holidays and a week off at Christmas and Easter.
