Annual Leave Purchase Scheme 

The window to purchase Additional Annual Leave Purchase is now open until 31 January 2021.  This allows you to purchase up to 5 days additional annual leave for the current leave year and this will be added to your entitlement at the start of February 2021.  The Scheme aims to provide additional flexibility in respect of planned time off work as we recognise that, for a variety of reasons, you may wish to take more than your standard contractual annual leave entitlement.


The cost of the additional annual leave (calculated at your normal daily rate), will be spread over a 6 month period and a calculator has been developed to give you a gross indication of cost.   The first salary deduction will be payable on Friday 26 February 2021.


Requesting additional leave is straightforward, login to HR Connect, select ‘Pay & Benefits’; scroll down to Time & Expenses and then click ‘Add Claim’; enter 01/01/2021 in the Start Date field and then choose Annual Leave Purchase in the claim template section; then click ‘new’; populate the ‘Reason for Request’ and then add the ‘Total Extra Hours Requested’ before submitting for approval by your line manager.
