It is your responsibility to ensure that you have spoken to all of your professorial staff and discussed with them whether or not you intend to nominate them for a salary increase or bonus, or to make a case for re-banding.
Where there is strong supporting evidence of excellent and sustained contribution or a specific one-off achievement you may wish to submit a case for a salary increase or bonus.
Where you have identified that a role may have grown into the next band, in line with the needs of the University and with reference to the criteria within the band summaries, the panel will assess if the role should be re-banded.
See Salary review routes in the tab above.
If you are nominating a Professor for a salary increase or a bonus, you will need to complete the Salary Increase/Bonus nomination form linked in the Documentation Required tab below, detailing whether you are recommended a salary increase or a bonus award and your accompanying supporting statement, referencing achievements to the Academic Career Pathways criteria.
If you are nominating a Professor for a re-banding, you will need to complete the Re-banding nomination form linked in the Documentation Required tab below, which includes your accompanying supporting statement in line with the Academic Career Pathway Criteria. The Professor who you will be nominating should complete both the Re-banding Supporting Statement form and the relevant CV Template. They should return both forms to you so that you can agree and finalise them and submit it by the deadline along with your nomination form.
Please discuss the submission with the individual professor, including the nature of your comments.
If a Professor believes that you should have put forward a case for them, they are encouraged to discuss this with you in more detail in the first instance. If they wish to challenge this further, then they may speak to the Vice-President & Head of Faculty, but we would expect this to be by exception only. Any discussion would need take place well in advance of the Faculty submission deadlines and Reward panels in September and October.
Introductory Zone Professors
Professors in the Introductory Zone will not be required to make a written submission unless you are recommending a salary rise greater than a one-point rise or a re-banding. See Salary review routes in the tab above.
Vice-President and Head of Faculty will ask for your comments. These comments will be based on the outputs from your SRDS discussions with professors.
Forms should be submitted to your Faculty Panel in the format/location they have informed you of. The deadline for your comments on submissions is determined by your Faculty.
Please direct any queries to your relevant Faculty HR Team.
