Preparing for the Future

If you have a contract with specified hours/weeks, you will be contractually enrolled into the relevant pension scheme.

Casual contracts will only be entered if you meet the criteria as an “eligible job holder” for auto enrolment. You will be contacted if you trigger auto enrolment and are enrolled into a pension scheme.

  • LGPS: Grades 1 - 5   (Contracts over 3 months)
  • USS: Grades 6 and above 

Joining the scheme

If you have previously opted out of the scheme, or are in a role that is not entered automatically, you can request to join.. Your email must be from your own email address and must contain the following statement: "I confirm I personally submitted this notice to join a workplace pension scheme." You will be entered into the scheme from the next available payroll run.
