Financial benefits

As a member of staff you will have access to a wide range of financial benefits. In addition to your basic salary, a highly competitive pension scheme will be offered.

King's has introduced a scheme called PensionsPlus, which is a cost effective way to pay into your existing pension scheme, and increases your take home pay.

Staff on the university single pay spine (Grades 1-8) currently have access to automatic incremental progression (where appropriate).

King's provides staff with the opportunity to obtain an interest free loan to pay for their annual travel ticket and provides access to a range of discounted products. The cycle to work scheme allows staff to make substantial savings on the cost of a bicycle, safety equipment and accessories.
