Human Resources


Salary will be paid in accordance with the appropriate national salary scales for universities and will be determined and notified to members of staff on their appointment and on the occasion of national salary scale revisions. Revisions which are backdated shall be paid to any member who has left in the interim upon request.

Salaries are paid in arrears in 12 monthly payments (unless otherwise stated in the contract of employment) by bank transfer. Payments of salary occur on the 27th of each month or the preceding working day if the 27th falls on a weekend or bank holiday. Special arrangements for early payment may be made for December payroll. Members of staff shall be notified in writing of their salaries each month. Deductions from salary will be made in respect of national insurance contributions and benefits, income tax and superannuation at the statutory or regulation rates.

Where appropriate, London allowance shall be added to the member’s salary. This allowance is pensionable.

Further details on salary payments can be found on the Finance website.
