Professorial Promotion

This year is the first of the new format where the both cases for promotion to the next band and cases for a salary increase within band will be heard as part of the same cycle, rather than taking place in alternate years. The deadline for submission of cases to Human Resources ( and to Faculty Deans is 28th October 2019.


For within-band salary reviews, cases will be considered by the Professorial Review Sub-Committee.

For promotion to the next band, process for a promotion is two-fold:

  • Step One is that there is a meeting in November where the case will be reviewed by the Professorial Review Sub-Committee to determine whether the case is a prima facie case. If this is the case then HR will write out to external references.

  • Step Two is a meeting in the summer term when all references have been returned. The Sub-Committee will meet to review the case alongside the references received and determine whether there is a case for promotion to either Band 2 or 3.

Please review these documents to ensure your case is prepared for submission:
