Professorial and senior staff salary review

The 2024 Professorial Pay Review is now closed.. 

All non-clinical professors are invited to submit an application for one of the following: 

  • A request to be promoted to a higher professorial zone 
  • An increase in basic salary (in addition to any annual increment) 
  • A one-off payment  

Whilst Professors are invited to submit an application, Executive Deans and Heads of School have been invited to engage with Professors in their faculty to encourage them to submit an application where they are willing to support such cases. You should therefore discuss any potential application with your Head of School or Executive Dean before applying. Further guidance can be found in the documents at the bottom of this page.

Please note all forms must be submitted to by 23:59 on Friday 17 May 2024. The approval committee will meet to review all applications. This is likely to happen in July.

Outcomes of the committee meeting will be communicated in August with all substantive increases to basic salary effective from 1 August 2024. Any one-off payments approved by the committee may be paid as part of the next available payroll.
If you have any queries regarding the process, please contact your HR contact or e-mail the Reward team at 

Clinical Professors

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