Career Pathways for Academic Staff Opportunities

Human Resources Work environment-based

Career Pathways outline the university's expectations and aspirations for individuals at their career level on each pathway

Career Pathways constitute a key part of the university's Academic Framework. They provide:

  • a consistent, equitable mechanism for assessing and rewarding an individual's contribution to academic life, aligned with the university's values and behaviours and People Strategy;
  • an opportunity to talk with staff about what the university is trying to achieve and their role in achieving it;
  • clarity of expectations in order to help members of staff to take more responsibility for the management of their own careers, and to help managers to agree objectives.

There are three pathways for academic career development at the university: Enterprise; Research; Teaching and Scholarship.  For further details of each pathway please click here.
