More of longer leave

Find out everything you need to know as an employee if you want to take longer leave, such as buying extra holiday hours, unpaid leave and the multi-year savings model.

  • Extra holiday hours

    You can use your salary, holiday allowance and end-of-year bonus to buy extra holiday hours. You can buy a maximum of 76 hours per calendar year, even if you work part-time. You can buy hours in the Selection Model, which you can customise in BASS.

  • Extended period of leave

    If you wish to take an extended period of leave, you can use your accrued hours for a sabbatical or long-term leave. You will need to coordinate this type of leave with your supervisor. See the ‘Extended period of leave’ page for more information.

  • Unpaid leave

    The ‘Unpaid leave’ page contains information about how you can request unpaid leave and the implications that this may have for your pension and social security.
