Department of Zoology


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 are three University Nurseries and three schemes for help with childcare costs.
