Remuneration Committee


What do we do?

The Remuneration Committee operates in line with the CUC HE Senior Staff Remuneration Code. It is responsible for overseeing fair and appropriate remuneration. It reviews and agrees the salary and performance-related bonuses of senior staff remunerated above point 51 of the national single pay spine and agrees any adjustments for the following year. It ensures there is: a fair, appropriate and justifiable level of remuneration; procedural fairness; transparency and accountability.

The committee reports to the Board of Governors via a Senior Remuneration Annual Report. This report serves to provide assurance that the committee has effectively discharged its responsibilities. Based upon this report, the University publishes a readily available Senior Remuneration Annual Statement; please see below.
