Remuneration 2020

By past convention the University published details on the remuneration of the Vice-Chancellor in its annual accounts each December. However when I took up the role of Vice-Chancellor the University’s Council agreed to my request that the information on my salary should be published as soon as any change in salary is finalised and approved by Remuneration Committee and reported to Council.


Council has accepted the latest report of the Remuneration Committee. So I am now free to report that this year I asked not to be considered for any award under the senior salary remuneration review (SPRR) for the 2017/18 review period.


Therefore the only change to my salary this year was the application of the overall national pay award of 2%, which applied to all Warwick staff on spine points 16 and above. That became effective from 1st August 2018 taking my salary from £297,105 to £303,047.

Further information that will be published on these pages

I also publish here details of any other expenses that I incur in this role once those expenses have been submitted as approved by an authorised signatory in accordance with the University's financial regulations. For overseas travel, the proposed purpose and duration of all trips are approved in advance by the Pro-Chancellor and Chair of Council.

All the figures regarding salary provided on these pages will of course be provisional until they are published as part of the University’s Statutory Accounts each December. An example of how they are published in that document can be seen on page 36 of the most recent accounts found online.
