The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2018

The Sunday Times
For the past two years, the University has been placed in The Sunday Times 100 Best-Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For list.

We have again registered to be considered for the 2018 list, which allows us to benchmark against other top, leading organisations. Consideration for the list involves completion of an anonymous and confidential survey.

The survey was sent to a random 30 per cent of staff on Monday 2 October, from the email address
. This may have arrived in the Promotions tab of your inbox.

The survey is optional, however it is important that we receive feedback on the range of questions to enable us to continue to strive to create a workplace where colleagues can succeed, become leaders in their fields and make a real impact in the world. 

Visit our 100 best survey webpages for FAQs and further information.

Juice - Looking after your mental wellbeing

New Logo

Mental wellbeing describes the way we think and feel about ourselves and others, our confidence, and our ability to control things in our life.

Like physical health, we need to protect our mental wellbeing. By creating opportunities to take some time out, relax and socialise with others, as well as getting involved in physical activity, we can increase our resilience and improve our mental wellbeing.

Following World Mental Health Day on 10 October, visit our In The Spotlight pages to see how colleagues across the University talk about their own experiences of mental wellbeing.

Don’t forget to take a look at the Juice Health Hub - over the coming months we’ll be publishing new articles about the steps you can take to help keep positive and healthy.

Cycle to work is changing


To support the University in promoting cycling for health and wellbeing and as a sustainable alternative to the use of the private car, from September 2017 our cycle to work scheme will open in 3 application windows throughout the year. This new approach will enable staff to apply for the scheme during peak times throughout the year and will support the efficient promotion of the scheme during these periods to maximise uptake. The application windows (open for 4 weeks) for 2017/18 will be:

  • Autumn: 1 September 2017 to 13 October 2017 (Extended implementation window)
  • Spring: 19 March 2018 to 13 April 2018
  • Summer: 21 May 2018 to 15 June 2018

All other terms and conditions of the scheme remain unchanged.

To apply for the cycle to work scheme, please visit The Deal via MUSE.

Juice Five Ways to Wellbeing

5waystowellbeing200We are now focussing our Juice offer around 5 steps that research shows consistently and positively relate to positive mental wellbeing and contribute to how we feel and function at home, at work and in everything we do.

The 5 steps are free, easily achievable and applicable to everyone regardless of personal circumstances.

We also have new activities in Autumn! These activities will be in addition to existing sessions, with spaces available to book on to newly scheduled badminton and walking football. Juice Walking Group, Needlework and Choir groups are still going strong but are always looking for new members to join them in their sessions too.

Take a look at the Juice Health Hub for more information and ideas about how you can develop your own healthy habits and book on to a range of activities on the platform.
