Staff benefits update

26 Jun 2013

It’s time to be reminded of all the great benefits you receive and the discounts you can access as a member of The University of Manchester staff community.


Why not register with Perkz to access hundreds of high street discounts and loadable gift cards. These help you save money on your weekly grocery shopping saving you hundreds of pounds a year. There are prizes to be won each month too!

The locally negotiated discounts cover offers on travel, entertainments, food and drink, home and lifestyle and general shopping.

Did you know you can save 40% on entrance tickets to Alton Towers with Merlin discounts? There are currently a number of last minute deals with Hoseasons too. Don’t forget to quote the MANU code.

Staff discounts are expanding all the time thanks to your continued recommendations and suggestions.

Prize draw winner

Many of you entered the prize draw to win a £50 iGo voucher to use at Cyclescheme stores! As the choice of answer was either Sir Bradley Wiggins or Brad Pitt for being the winner of the Tour de France in 2012, it generated some amusing (but all correct) answers! So thank you to you all for getting into the spirit of the “competition”.

The winner was (drum roll):

  • Linda Irish, Faculty of Humanities

Congratulations, Linda!

And finally

Did you hear about the curious case of the Egyptian statue that was filmed moving at the Manchester Museum? Anyone got any thoughts on this mystery?
