Kent has a number of ways to recognise the outstanding performance and contribution of our staff - through promotion, additional increments, one-off payments or team awards.
Every year, we recognise the success of individual academic staff with a number of promotions to professor, reader, senior lecturer or senior research fellow.
Additional and discretionary salary increments are open to all staff for:
- recognition of outstanding contribution
- recruitment and retention.
Kent will give financial recognition to a member of staff who assumes significant responsibilities in addition to his/her normal responsibilities and typically for a finite period.
A one-off payment can be given to a member of staff for one-off superior delivery of a specific assignment.
Additional salary awards for Academic and Research staff
Salary awards for staff grades 1 to 9
These apply to non-academic or research staff only.
Grade review for grades 1 to 10
Staff award schemes
Kent has a number of ways to recognise the outstanding performance and contribution of its staff whether it is through promotion, additional increments, one-off payments or team awards.
We also have the Appraisal (RPD) framework, where individuals can have regular conversations with their managers and colleagues about their contribution to shared goals and their individual career development.
