The scheme is open to all support, administrative and other academic-related staff
- whose terms and conditions of employment specify a 25-day annual leave entitlement (or equivalent in hours or a pro-rata equivalent), and
- who have completed six months' continuous service at the time of making their request.
Staff can request up to 10 days of additional leave per annual leave year; for full-time staff, each day's leave costs 1/260th of their annual salary. The cost can be paid in one go or spread over six months' salary instalments.
Requests should be made as early as possible; there are deadlines of the beginning of and half-way through the leave year for requests for additional leave in the following six months.
