The Remuneration Committee

The Remuneration Committee is directly responsible for setting the remuneration of the President and Vice-Chancellor and the Senior Leadership Team.

The Committee also approves the base salaries suggested by the Senior Salaries Review Group for Grade 9 academic-related staff and the Faculty Promotions Committee for professorial staff in the top two professorial zones.

When considering base salary increases for senior staff, the Committee takes careful account of the level of salary increases across the University in general, and the financial position of the University including the budget available for such increases.

The Committee reports directly to The University of Manchester’s Board of Governors. It is established in accordance with the principles of the Higher Education Code of Governance published by the Committee of University Chairs.
