Staff Information

Staff Handbook

Staff Handbook

The Staff Handbook contains information relating to the main particulars of employment for all staff of the University.

Most of the policies and guidance contained in this handbook apply to all staff of the University. However, there are some policies applicable to particular groups of staff where additional specific conditions of service apply. This is indicated in the policies.

All sections of the handbook have been prepared following consultation and, where appropriate, negotiation with staff and representatives of staff through the University's recognised trade unions.

Firefox is the recommended browser for the following staff handbook links – if you are having problems opening links or documents on this page please exit your browser and open the UCLan webpages again through Firefox.

These opportunities are short term, one-off or infrequent activities and are advertised / arranged by Academic and Professional Services as and when required. 

If you are interested in ad-hoc work, you need to complete the following steps:
