The university offers competitive salaries (see our salary scales pdf) and contributory pension schemes which provide a range of retirement benefits plus provision for dependents. Arrangements exist for transfer in from other pension schemes.
Find out more about our two main schemes, the Local Government Pension Scheme, and Teachers' Pensions. The university also operates the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). This is a national scheme available for staff who were contributing members of USS immediately prior to commencing employment at the University of Brighton.
The university provides generous employer pension contributions which are as follows:
| Scheme name|| Percentage|
| Local Government Pension Scheme
| Teacher's Pension Scheme
| Universities Superannuation Scheme
Members of staff have access, from the start of their employment, to retail discounts and benefits through the Edenred Benefits Scheme. This scheme provides a range of benefits including discounts with several large supermarkets, and other large well-known retailers (for example, gardening, DIY, and travel).
