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.

Is the NLW for 20/21 going to be backdated to December 2020? The award was made from from April 2021, but then I heard it was to be backdated for those four months from Dec 20 to April 21 this summer. So far my staff don’t believe they’ve had anything yet. Please advise

Hi Steven. The VLW (Living Wage Foundation Rate) was agreed to be backdated from 1 Dec 2020. The university will apply these payments when the local pay award is applied, we hope that this will be within the September or October salary. Further communications will be issued when this is confirmed. Thanks

I joined security in December last year and so far have not had an inflation pay award . Can you tell me if I qualify for any pay increase this year ie does this apply to me ? Thank you

Hi Julian. Arrangements will vary depending on personal circumstances, please contact HR. However the inflationary pay rise for local negotiated staff groups (including security employees) is currently not finalised. We hope this will happen soon, and those staff will receive the inflationary increase (rate to be determined) once this happens. The university will communicate when that agreement is reached. Thanks.

Would it be possible to get the updated salary scales published in the usual place please. I note the reply from 6th Sept but they still refer to 2019. Thank you!
