The Performance Awards are annual awards, based on performance and contribution during the academic year, 1 August - 31 July.
Since normal incremental pay progression already reflects an expectation of continuous performance and growth in role, any nomination for a Performance Award must clearly articulate how the performance and contribution is exceptional and sustained.
The award will consist of a one-off payment, to the value of one increment and will be subject to employee tax and national insurance. An award will be consolidated if an employee receives a Performance Award two years in a row (previous Discretionary Awards will not be taken in to consideration).
Heads of School/Directors will be able to nominate staff for a Performance Award during August and September, with Faculty Executive Boards and the Registrar's Group reviewing the nominations in October. Performance awards will be paid in December.
