Terms of Appointment
Also known as ‘conditions of service’, terms of appointment for all staff groups were agreed with the trade unions as part of the National Framework Agreement and implemented on 1 August 2006.
We revised them for the three main staff groups in October 2007 after the University's Statutes and Ordinances were revised. In February and March 2009, there were further amendments to take account of job title changes for academic staff and the introduction of PensionsPlus for all staff.
In October 2009, we amended the rate of the University’s contributions to USS, and, in October 2011, Pensions and Retirement Information.
