Health and Wellbeing

Mindful Employer LogoBucks New University is a Mindful Employer and is proud to hold and display the charter mark.

Creating a healthy workplace is about much more than preventing injuries and minimising risks. It means providing an environment that is conducive to good health, promoting a healthy lifestyle, supporting people in their recovery from periods of ill health and making positive adjustments for those with disabilities and chronic health conditions. We have a wealth of information to help employees take steps to look after themselves.

  • Free eye tests and a contribution towards the cost of glasses should you need them for VDU use
  • Discounted Gym membership
  • Free flu jabs
  • Access to free and confidential onsite counselling 
  • Employee Assistance Helpline

The University also actively encourages staff to participate in volunteering activities and supports individual employees and teams who wish to do voluntary work within the community or for charities.

For volunteering schemes operated by the University, employees are granted up to two days a year of paid time off to participate in projects.
