The university has announced details of staff pay increases and incremental progression awards for the new academic year 2021/22.
A significant proportion of university staff, who also receive an increment, will see combined increases of between 3.5% and 4.5%.
The awards also deliver significant enhancements for the lowest paid staff and include a further commitment to pay the equivalent of the latest Voluntary Living Wage when it is confirmed in November.
Details of salary scales are now available to view for all grades and job families.
Director of Human Resources Jaspal Kaur said: “Following the back payment of increments for 2020/21 in recent months, I hope that colleagues will welcome prompt implementation of the 2021/22 pay award and increments in time for the new academic year.
This year’s increases compare well with recent awards elsewhere in the public sector, where many public sector workers are subject to a pay freeze, and with the median pay award for the not-for-profit sector standing at 1.3%.”
The University of Nottingham undertakes annual pay negotiations on the cost of living increase through national collective bargaining led by UCEA for research, teaching and APM grade 4-7 staff; and local pay negotiations for APM grades 1-3, staff in Operations & Facilities, Technical Services and Childcare Services.
