Staff benefits and discounts

Reading time: 2 minutes
Do you take advantages of the benefits and discounts available to staff?

The Human Resources Reward Team is always looking for new benefits and discounts to add to the University’s offering so if you know of a local business who would like to feature on our pages as offering a discount to staff, please ask them to email:

You can also email if you have any suggestions of businesses that you would like the reward team to approach about a possible discount.


We would like to remind employees that the the Mylifestyle hub gives staff access to numerous retail discounts, the University’s Childcare Voucher Scheme (existing members only) and the Cycle to Work Scheme (eligibility requirements).

The Mydiscounts section of the portal has recently been updated and is now more user friendly, making it easier to browse and search for specific discounts.

Mydiscounts is in addition to the University’s current staff discounts offering. Generally, discounts available through the portal are for large national retailers whereas the individual discounts featured on the HR Pay & Reward SharePoint are mainly focused on local or smaller businesses: HR Pay & Reward SharePoint.

More information about Mylifestyle, including how to register, can be found on the Mylifestyle SharePoint site.

Edenred Savings App

Edenred, the providers of Mylifestyle and the University’s childcare voucher scheme, have recently launched a new discounts app which enables employees who have registered for the Mylifestyle portal to access some of the discounted gift cards that are available via their mobile phone.

You can download Edenred Savings from the App Store or wherever you usually download your apps. You can use your Mylifestyle username and password to access the discounts wherever you are.
