Salary Scales


Most University staff are paid a salary on the University’s main pay scale, which is based on a nationally-agreed scale. The scale is split into six main levels and provides the starting point for a seventh level.

The levels are divided into a progression range, from the minimum to the maximum point and an advancement range, for progression above the maximum point to the supermaximum point of the level. The levels work slightly differently in the Operations and Facilities job family with spot salaries within the level. Further information on salary progression can be found in the Activity/Performance Review section.

A salary uplift is usually applied to the scales on the 1st August each year, however, dates can vary depending on national and local agreements.

Salaries are paid monthly on the penultimate working day of the month.

The salary scales, including the on-costs, are now in one spreadsheet. You will need a minimum of MS Excel 2007 to view this properly. Contact your local IT Helpline for information regarding an upgrade if you use MS Excel 2003.
