Professorial and senior staff salary review

The process normally begins in the Spring when the Deputy Director of Human Resources, Linda Mortimer Pine, will contact you by email to invite you to apply.

The Professorial and Senior Staff Salary Review Committee then meets in June, and any increases agreed by the Committee are applied from 1 August.

Grade 10 non-professorial staff may apply either for a salary increase or for a one off payment. Your University Executive Group lead can also recommend either of these on your behalf.

Professorial staff have three options: to apply for promotion to a higher zone, for a salary increase which will take you to a higher point within your current salary zone (or above zone if your salary is currently at the top of, or above, zone 3), or for a one off payment. Your Executive Dean can recommend an increase within zone or a one off payment on your behalf. Note though that, if you want to move to a higher zone, you must submit an application yourself.  The professorial salary scale can be downloaded below.

Clinical professors

If you are a clinical professor, you are paid in line with nationally agreed, published NHS pay scales and in addition are eligible to apply for Clinical Excellence Awards which recognise contribution (including academic contribution). You are therefore not eligible to apply through this process.
