The University of Cambridge operates an annual Contribution Reward Scheme for Academic-Related Staff in Grade 12.  The information below and on these pages relates to the 2023 scheme for awards effective 1 October 2023.

This scheme comprises two components, which are explained below.  Eligible employees may be nominated for one award, i.e. either a contribution increment or a single contribution payment, in each annual exercise.

  • Contribution increments are awarded in recognition of exceptional contribution;
  • Single Contribution Payments are awarded to employees who have reached the top spine point for their band within Grade 12, or in recognition of their contribution in relation to a short term piece of work.

Full details of this scheme can be found in the guidance document linked on the right hand side of this page.
