Oxford Brookes University employs its academic, research and support staff on a 12-grade structure linked to the national Higher Education (HE) pay spine. There are a further four grades for senior staff. Our grading structure is underpinned by the HERA job evaluation scheme.
The salary spine is reviewed annually in the light of the national pay award for HE. Staff progress through the normal pay range for their grade by annual increments. Staff who demonstrate a sustained and exceptional contribution may access the contribution salary points above the normal range.
