Salary scales

The latest salary scales can be found below.

 

The Queen Mary salary scale for grades 1-7 is updated in accordance with  cost-of-living increases that have been collectively agreed between the Universities and Colleges Employers’ Association (UCEA) and the Trade Unions.

Each job in Queen Mary is placed on a pay grade, according to a fair and objective job evaluation process. Pay progression within each grade 1-7 is via an automatic increment each year in August until your pay reaches the top of the automatic incremental zone (the ‘yellow’ section of the grade). Any further pay progression (in the ‘purple’ section of the grade) is considered via the annual Staff Bonus Scheme.

In January 2024, a number of changes were made to grade 1 and 2 of the Queen Mary Pay scale.  The starting salaries for both grade 1 and grade 2 were increased, uplifting the starting salary for both grades by 3 pay points respectively.  Additionally, the top point of grade 1 was increased enabling colleagues in grade one to see an increase in pay progression over time.

The Queen Mary salary scales effective from 1st January 2024 are here:

TATF Time Allocation Model

TATF Allocation Model [DOC 22KB]

The TATF Time Allocation model, created through consultation with Schools and UCU, is designed to be a guide for the academic year in support of creating a broadly consistent experience across the population of Teaching Associates and Teaching Fellows.  It is a guide only and there is nothing here which is intended to be either definitive or contractual.  The model lists the variety of activities that Schools have indicated they engage Teaching Associates and Teaching Fellows for.  However, the existence of an activity does not in any way oblige a School to use TAs and TFs for that activity. Variations to these generic guidelines have been agreed with individual Schools, in consultation with HR, where their particular teaching model differs from the generic.  You may wish to request your School’s specific model directly from your School’s administrator.
