Grading Review Procedure
Following consultation and approval by the Human Resources Committee the Grading Review Procedure has been available for launch since 30 July 2007.
The procedure applies to the review of the grading of posts with the exclusion of applications for academic promotion (Personal Chair, Reader, Senior Lecturer, and Senior Professional Tutors) which are covered by separate procedures.
If you require any further information or assistance please contact the relevant Human Resources Manager for your School / Directorate who will be able to provide specific advice tailored to the individual case(s).
