At Bournemouth University we are committed to recruiting, retaining and recognising a high-performing workforce through pay and reward structures that: 

  • Are fair and consistent
  • Reward contribution, achievement, knowledge and experience
  • Support the achievement of equal pay for work of equal value
  • Provide for salary and career progression to attract, retain and motivate staff
  • Recognise and reward excellence.

Each role falls into an appropriate grade within the National Single Pay Spine and staff are appointed in accordance with the skills and experience they bring.

Pay awards

BU is part of National Pay Negotiations, so annual cost of living increases are subject to the outcome of such negotiations and would take effect from 1 August each year.

Progression opportunities

Progression opportunities within the grades are provided via our relevant pay progression schemes, operated annually with the aim to recognise and reward contribution.
