Pay and reward at Durham

Durham University offers a generous reward and benefits package, to attract and retain the very best people. 

As well as financial benefits, the University also provides a range of benefits including discounts at local and national stores, discounted private medical cover, an on-premises Day Nursery, travel and transport discounts and flexible working.  

Pay negotiations take place annually by a UK-wide Joint National Committee for Higher Education Staff (JNCHES), who negotiate on our behalf. Staff on a University contract have received a pay uplift for 2021/22, with effect from 1 August 2021.  

Employees can see the total value of their reward package through our annual Total Rewards Statements.
