Other benefits

And the benefits don't stop there . . .

In addition to the benefits already mentioned, we offer a wide range of other discounts, offers and opportunities, that are available to all employees of Loughborough University.

Time to volunteer

The University has introduced an employer supported volunteering policy as part of our commitment to community engagement and corporate social responsibility.

It is intended to support, encourage and develop you as an employee, by supporting your involvement in volunteering opportunities within the community and for charitable organisations. This support includes help to identify appropriate volunteering opportunities, as well as time off to allow you to get involved in local initiatives.

This policy applies to all substantive members of University staff, and certain terms and conditions apply. For full details on the support that is available visit www.lboro.ac.uk/staff-volunteering

Discount cards

From discount on highstreet goods and services, to offers and incentives from suppliers local to Loughborough, you can access a number of discount and loyalty cards to use during your everyday activities and leisure time.
