RGU

Our staff have worked hard to earn our impressive reputation so it’s only fair that they are well rewarded for their efforts.

You’ll enjoy competitive pay and contribution to either the Scottish Teachers Superannuation Scheme or the North East Scotland Pension Fund, depending on your role, together with transport, health, family, wellbeing benefits and retail discounts. We know how  important it is to strike that work/life balance and our annual leave reflects that, starting at 38 days per annum (including statutory holidays), rising to 43 days for some roles.

Overview of main terms and conditions

Lifestyle and Wellbeing

We’ve invested more than £10 million in our onsite, state of the art sports facility for staff, students and the local community. Staff benefit from discounted membership with no contracts or joining fees.

We are committed to encouraging the use of sustainable transport by students, staff and visitors and making a positive contribution to reducing emissions in and around the workplace. We operate schemes where you can make big savings on new bikes for the purpose of travelling to work or purchase discounted bus tickets

We offer a number of discounted healthcare benefits which include private healthcare, a health cash plan to cover every day healthcare expenses and a dental plan.   

Supporting Working Parents

We understand that childcare is a significant outlay for working parents. That’s why we’ve done everything we can to support our working families. Our on site nursery is an outstanding purpose built facility run by Bright Horizons, an internationally recognised childcare provider. Your child will benefit from the highest quality care from 3 months to 5 years of age, and you can enjoy the convenience of a single journey to work and nursery.  Our salary sacrifice scheme means you can reduce your entire childcare costs by 35-42%. Alternatively, if you use other childcare providers, you can still exchange part of your salary for childcare vouchers (subject to a weekly limit).

RGU SPORT is currently host to Kings Camps, one of the largest providers of holiday childcare in the UK. Staff receive discount on holiday childcare which runs daily during Easter, Summer and October holidays.
