Since this was a short contract based work, no benefits was given and expected.
I was placed on the national pension scheme and was entitled to paid and sick leave and private parking.
If you are a PhD student here (as with most other universities) you have very few benefits and, as you are not a real employee, you do not have access to sick pay etc either - something to be wary of if you do consider starting a PhD
Good holidays, 31 days (including bank holidays), no evening or weekend work expected, time off over Christmas, flexible working hours, some staff have option of working from home if necessary
Holidays are good, 28 days per year, plus extra days between Christmas and New Year. There is also the Ferguson Bequest that allows technical staff to get 2 free tickets to 2 attractions annually such as Edinburgh Zoo and Blair Drummond.
The good thing about benefits is the NEST Pension scheme. The University contributes up to 13% on top to the scheme which is a lot higher than UK average and the requested minimum.
Best thing was the gym
I can really see any best or worst thing about the whole package. It is a flexible contract
Sick leave, annual leave, pension.
Great benefits for health hair and beauty, mobile phones, days out and activities
