Family Friendly

We aim to make our working practices as family friendly as possible.  Flexible working is widely practiced. In addition a number of staff have worked or are currently working part-time whilst coping with the demands of a young family.

We plan to hold the majority of meetings and seminars in the middle of the day in order to allow those with evening family commitments to better manage their work and family commitments.

In addition the University makes generous provision for family leave (including maternity and paternity leave).

For those with childcare responsibilities there is a University Nursery for staff and students as well as a childcare voucher scheme to help mitigate childcare costs even if you choose not to use the nursery.

Useful Links

The University Staff Parent Guide, and the Cambridge Guide for Student Parents are comprehensive guides covering everything from Maternity and Paternity Leave, to childcare information and flexible working policies, however there are also some short cuts to this information below:
