The university staff party allowance is available again this year to help staff meet the costs of celebrating the 2021 festive season with their colleagues.
The £10 per person staff party allowance can be used to subsidise seasonal team celebrations either on or off campus. Your celebrations could be on campus with EMCC or off-campus in the city’s amazing array of cafes, bars and restaurants.
Please note that the allowance should only be used for recognised staff team parties or dinners and cannot cover multiple events or informal, individual celebrations.
The team at the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre and Orchard Hotel, have developed some exciting festive options so that staff can enjoy the season with colleagues.
If you are keeping your festive celebration on campus, please book via the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre and Orchard Hotel, stating a University budget project code from which to pay the allowance.
If you wish to celebrate off-campus, please contact your local Purchasing Support team, who will be able to provide further information and may be able to arrange direct payment to the venue as a deposit to secure the booking.
If you have already booked your celebration and wish to claim the allowance, you can make a personal expenses claim through Concur under Entertainment (Employee Annual Function), providing a receipt.
Please note all costs will be classed as staff costs and will come from operational budgets.
Wherever and however you celebrate, please remember to socialise safely, following Government guidelines and being respectful of others’ choices. You can view our current campus safety guidelines here.
