Socially responsible employer

We strive to be socially responsible both within and without our organisation.

Living Wage

The University of Leicester pays at least a Living Wage to all staff.

Union recognition

The University recognises and negotiates with three Unions: UCU, Unite & Unison.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Modern slavery & trafficking

Our workplace policies and procedures demonstrate our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our HR policies and procedures reflect UK employment law.


Electronics watch

We have made great strides in improving our sustainability credentials, including becoming founding members of ElectronicsWatch (which monitors adherence to workers’ rights legislation throughout IT hardware supply chains).

Reforming supply chain in another product category

Our Sustainable Procurement Policy identifies working with supply chain. The university has signed up to the Net Positive Engagement Tool which will be used to work with supply chain.
