Reward and Recognition

There has been a change to which Reward and Recognition schemes are available this year. The list below sets out which schemes are running and the schemes that are on hold for academic year 23/24, and this Staff Portal story sets out the reasons the University have taken this decision.

Available schemes

Celebrating Success

Long Service Awards

Schemes on hold

Lump Sum Awards

Additional Incremental Progression/Contribution Points

Merit-Based Promotion

Personal Titles (Academic promotions)

Professorial Annual Review

Senior Management Annual Review


Information about the purpose of the different schemes and how to apply or award them will be added once the schemes are back up and running again.

Please note that the Regrading procedure is still in operation. It is important to remember that it is the role that is being evaluated, not the role holder or their performance.

In addition, applications for Staff Retention cases will still be considered.
