Annual Leave Purchase Scheme now open

March 4th, 2024

The Annual Leave Purchase Scheme is now open for enrolment, and this time giving you the opportunity to purchase up to two weeks additional annual leave.

Throughout the Deputy Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer Roadshows, we’ve had brilliant suggestions from colleagues to help address the university’s financial challenges.

Based on feedback from the sessions, the Annual Leave Purchase Scheme will be returning.

The scheme is now open from Monday 4 March 2024 until 5pm on Thursday 28 March 2024.

You can access the Annual Leave Purchase Scheme via the Employee Hub – just click on the ‘Benefits’ tab and scroll down the page.

During this period, eligible employees can purchase up to an additional two weeks annual leave (pro-rated for part-time staff).

Salary deductions will be taken from April 2024 over a six-month period until September 2024.

Annual leave purchased through the scheme needs to be taken within the relevant holiday year and booked in line with normal holiday booking processes.

This means for staff whose holiday year runs October – September, additional leave needs to be taken by 30 September 2024.

For staff whose holiday year runs January – December, additional leave needs to be taken by 31 December 2024.

How to apply

To apply for the scheme, you can use our easy ‘How-to’ guide for more information on how to purchase additional leave.

Full scheme details including eligibility can be found within the scheme guide, and FAQs for employees and Line Managers can be found on the Employee Hub.

If you are interested in applying to the scheme, please discuss any plans for taking the additional purchased annual leave with your Line Manager prior to enrolling.
