Most University staff are paid a salary 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 where the 2019 local pay offer created a 2 point salary (note, there is no supermaximum range for roles in this job family).
Salaries are paid monthly on the penultimate working day of the month - see Pay Dates and Deadlines
