Apply for Contribution Points

Applies to: All staff on non-clinical grades 1 – 9, clinical staff on grades CL7, 8, 9 and StR Scales

As with the process for additional accelerated increments, staff may be awarded a contribution point when they are at the top of their salary scale and where the following criteria have been met:

  • Outstanding performance has been achieved and maintained.
  • The employee has been formally appraised in the previous twelve months.
  • The objectives set have been stretching, have exceeded expectations and were fully achieved (unless circumstances beyond the member of staff’s control have prevented this).

If it is felt that the employee in question has achieved the above criteria then consideration may also be given to awarding contribution points. This must be in recognition of performance that is greatly and exceptionally exceeding expectations.
