How will staff be allocated to new grades?

There are nationally agreed academic role profiles in 3 families (teaching and research, research, teaching and scholarship) which set out the requirements at each of the 5 academic grades.

Academic staff should be matched to the appropriate grade using benchmark posts. The matching process will be underpinned by the relevant job evaluation scheme being used at the institution.

It is UCU policy that academic-related staff should be matched in the same way following the development and agreement on local academic-related role profiles.

Subject to the outcome of role analysis / job evaluation of individual posts it is expected that staff will transfer in the following way:
