Benefit your health and your wealth
Still thinking about joining The Edge? Well, it’s just become an even more attractive proposition, now that the University has confirmed the expansion of staff benefits to include access to sports membership through the Salary Sacrifice Scheme.
For most staff, this means a reduction in the cost of the membership (on average) of between 30-40 per cent (subject to individual circumstances). A commitment for 12 months to the membership is required by HM Revenue & Customs regulations.
If you’d like to purchase a sports membership and take advantage of this scheme, please visit www.leeds.ac.uk/theedge – go to the staff membership section – for more information on how to join, or email email@example.com
Please be aware that the deadline for memberships to be processed to take effect for a particular month’s pay run is usually in the middle of the previous month, and that the relevant forms must be signed in person at The Edge.
“We’re delighted that the Benefits+ Scheme has been extended to include sports membership. We hope access to sport and leisure facilities on campus, and of an excellent standard, will provide enjoyable health and exercise opportunities for all staff,” says Linda Mortimer-Pine.
Note: Sport & Physical Activity are unable to tell you exactly how much you’ll save or how much your membership will cost through salary sacrifice. Payroll, pensions and HR are also unable to give you this information. The best way to estimate the saving is to use an online net pay calculator to work out what your net pay would be before sports membership deduction and then after.
