For Staff in Posts at Levels 1A to 5

For staff in posts at levels 6 to 8
Increments for staff at levels 6 to 8 in the University’s grading structure are paid on 1st October each year, until reaching the maximum of the grade. If you are appointed after 1st April, you will receive your first increment on 1st October in the following year.
For staff in level 9 posts
There are no increments for staff in post at level 9 in the University’s grading structure. You will be included in an annual Senior Salary Review Scheme conducted by the Vice Chancellor. Salary increases as a result of the review process are paid on 1st August each year. This scheme, and how it is applied, is entirely discretionary and non contractual. The University reserves the right to amend or withdraw the scheme with or without notice.
- Apprenticeships - increments are on anniversary of appointment and in line with any conditions of the apprenticeship scheme concerned.
- If due to a promotional move or previous terms and conditions (e.g. a researcher on anniversary of appointment date) an employee is on a different increment date from those stated in the harmonised terms for their grade, they will remain on their current increment date until such time as they are offered a new contract for a different post or a promotion to a higher graded post. Extensions of research contracts for the same post would not result in a change of increment date.
