Academic staff

Salary rates for academic staff employed on a continuing or fixed-term basis are set for each level and step in Schedule 1. Full-time Academic Salaries of the Academic Staff Enterprise Agreement.

Generally, after each year of continuous service, staff will progress to the next step within the same level. This will continue each year until the top step is reached. This is referred to as incremental progression.

If a Level A staff member (Associate Lecturer) possesses or gains a PhD qualification, they are eligible to move to Step 6 of Level A. A copy of the PhD award will need to be provided to their Payroll Advisor.

Annual leave loading

In the first pay of December each year, staff will receive an additional amount called annual leave loading. Annual leave loading is an additional payment of 17.5% of four weeks of base salary, or a payment equal to the Australian Bureau of Statistics average weekly total earnings for all males (Australian) for the Bureau’s reporting period preceding the date of accrual, whichever is the lesser. For part-time staff and staff who have been employed for less than one year, annual leave loading will be paid pro-rata.
