Bulletin Date: 
Monday, 30 September, 2019
Action Required
All staff

Views are sought on proposals for the six initiatives listed below. These have been considered by the HR Committee and seek to address key priorities set out by the Vice-Chancellor and the People Strategy. 

  • Academic Titles - proposed structure for Academic Titles.
  • Teaching-focused Career Pathway – proposal to introduce a career pathway for teaching-focused staff in grades 6-12.
  • Researcher Career Pathway (RCP) – proposal to replace the current Senior Research Promotions (SRP) scheme from September 2020.
  • Dual University Senior Lecturer (USL) Career Pathway – proposal to allow for promotion to USL [Associate Professor G10, if approved] through both research and teaching excellence.
  • Contribution Reward Scheme G1-11 – proposal to change the way in which Single Contribution Payments are awarded to Professional Service staff (Academic-related and Assistant) in Grades 1-11.
  • Time off for volunteering – proposal to run a two-year pilot that will offer Assistant staff up to one day’s matched paid leave to undertake volunteering activity (e.g. where an individual takes a day’s leave for volunteering, the University will match with one additional day’s leave). Your comments and feedback are invited, individually or collectively. 

Please see for full details about each initiative, and how to respond with your comments. Responses can be submitted online during Michaelmas Term (specific dates are provided in the link). The HR Committee will consider the responses during Lent 2020.
