The Contributions Procedure applies to all staff at the University and outlines the process to be followed by those wishing to be considered for a contribution award.

The process for applying for a contribution award has been removed from the annual Promotions exercise. Contribution applications going forward should be submitted in line with the Contributions procedure which now applies to all University staff.

This form should be submitted by an individual's line manager (following discussion with the individual) to apply for a Contribution Pay Award. Line managers are expected to regularly consider the contribution of all members of their team and submit applications which meet the criteria as appropriate. Recommendations that an application be submitted can also be drawn to the line manager’s attention by:

  • Individual members of staff
  • Colleagues wishing to nominate an individual to receive an award

Please note, an application for a contribution award will still be considered should the Head of School/Section not support this. Please read the Contributions Procedure prior to completing the Contribution Form.

Recommendations for in-year salary increases for members of Professorial/Grade 9 staff are considered through the Professorial and Senior Staff Salary Review process. Recommendations for Heads of School/Section are submitted for consideration by the Remuneration Committee.
