All new University employees with fixed hours are put into a pension scheme.
The University's pension schemes, except for NEST, are defined benefit schemes. This means they are protected from the fluctuations of the stock market and your rate of pension is guaranteed. NEST - the National Employment Savings Trust - is a money purchase arrangement which means that you build up a pension pot that is used to provide you with your pension.
