STRONG LEADERSHIP AND good career prospects make staff feel happy about working for Edge Hill University, which ranks in the top 10 for both employees' positive views about the university and the opportunities for personal growth among all 75 public sector organisations. Established by philanthropists in 1885, the Ormskirk-based institution began as a teacher training college with just 41 students and today is one of the fastest growing universities in the country, operating across eight locations. Employees care about providing a great service, giving an impressive 96% positive in our staff survey, the second highest result of any mid-sized body. They also believe Edge Hill succeeds in providing this (76%). The university offers the chance to continue learning and developing to its 1,234 staff as well as its 23,000-plus students. Opportunities are provided through structured role progression and a variety of degree, masters or PhD courses at discounted rates, as well as professional and vocational education and training and a staff enrichment programme. Employees say they are able to learn and grow (59%, the second highest score), and their work is stimulating (75%). They feel they can make a difference (74%) and contribute to the success of the university (78%). Vice-chancellor Dr John Cater's termly address and weekly email updates keep everyone informed, while an annual back-to-the-floor exercise enables senior managers to experience the challenges of frontline roles. Employees have a great deal of faith in Cater (72%), who has led the institution for 20 years. They believe he runs it on sound moral principles (71%) and are inspired by him (66%). More than 40% of employees earn in excess of £35,000, including senior lecturers, whose average salary is nearly £43,500. Benefits include subsidised facilities and a final-salary pension into which the university pays a minimum 14.1% of employees' pay. Staff are happy with the pay and these perks (66%, the eighth best score). Employees, almost half of whom have been on the payroll for at least five years, are proud to work for the university (74%) and are excited about its future (69%, the fourth best result). www.edgehill.ac.uk

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

85% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Communication is the life blood of any organisation and the regular weekly email and termly addresses by the Vice Chancellor are commended by the staff each year in the annual staff survey. During the current year and with the significant amount of uncertainty surrounding the future of the HE sector, the Directorate have made a conscious effort to spend even more time engaging with staff across all levels explaining both the realities of the policy framework within which the University will be conducting its business but also seeking to assuage concerns which should not exist and which were merely developed as a result of inaccurate press reporting. This has involved many hundreds of hours with staff groups both formal and informal. Difficult decisions have never been held back from staff nor have the challenges being faced along with our proposed actions. This open, honest and transparent way of working has undoubtedly positioned the University well to address the challenges of the coming years whilst ensuring everyone employed by the University remains engaged and committed to their core mission.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
