New annual leave purchase benefit

5 August 2022

We are pleased to confirm that from the start of the next annual leave year employees, subject to line management approval, will be able to buy up to 5 days of extra annual leave (pro-rated for part-time employees).

Work Life Balance Policy

UCL recognises that a good work-life balance is important to our wellbeing and with an ability to get some extra annual leave you may want to use it for special events coming up, or to spend more time with your children on their school holidays.

All additional leave needs to be submitted and approved before the end of the leave year which is 30 September with agreed leave then added to the upcoming year’s leave entitlement. Please see the Additional Leave Purchasing Scheme (ALPS) for more information and how to submit your request for additional leave on MyHR.
