Information for managers about the standard contracts of employment for University staff
Recruitment processes are run at local, departmental level but University employees are employed by the ‘Chancellor, Master and Scholars of the University’. Contract templates are therefore standardised and departments should not alter the template contract wording.
Departmental HR teams are responsible for producing standard employment-related correspondence for support and academic-related posts, including offer letters, contracts, contract cover letters and contract amendments and extensions.
Contractual documentation should be drafted through PeopleXD. Off-system templates, and guidance notes, below are provided for information.
See the guidance on variants, below, for additional information about extensions over the EJRA, apprentices, RSIV and ALC6, Departmental Administrators, regraded posts, Marie Curie fellows, E64 clinical training fellows, and Market Pay supplements.
