Who administers my appointment? Who do I contact?
Divisional Office Staff: you should contact your line manager in the first instance, who may refer you to the divisional HR team for questions regarding the administration of your appointment, or to the relevant team (e.g. IT, Safety, supplies).
Academic Staff (Associate Professors, Readers): you should contact the divisional HR team who administers all aspects of your appointment, including payroll and leave arrangements. Your College association is a separate appointment and they are a separate employer, so you should direct any queries to the Senior Tutor (or equivalent) in the first instance.
For any other queries (for instance practical issues regarding office and/or lab space, supplies, IT) you should contact your departmental administrator in the first instance, who may refer you to the departmental HR team.
Full professorships: you should contact the divisional HR team in the first instance (for queries regarding your appointment, e.g. payroll and leave arrangements). Recruitment to statutory posts are administered by the Senior Appointments Office, but once in post, the Professorial appointment is administered by the divisional office or the department. As for academic staff, you should contact your departmental administrator for queries regarding day-to-day issues within the department, and your college regarding any issues to do with your fellowship.
Titular Professorships: you should contact the divisional HR team (if an academic appointment) or your departmental administrator (if a departmental appointment). Your post, duties or salary do not change upon conferral of the title of full professor - it is simply a means of recognising an associate professor’s academic distinction. However, Council introduced a permanent additional salary payment of £2,600 per annum from October 2014 to all of those in the main lecturer grades who have met the criteria for the conferment of the title of (full) professor, unless they already receive additional recruitment or retention payments at that level or above).
Departmental Staff not classified as academic: you should contact your departmental administrator in the first instance, who may refer you to the departmental HR team for queries regarding your appointment.
