What hourly rate should I be paying student temps?

A new schedule of grades and pay rates has been produced that is linked to the University pay scale. The Unitemps team will be happy to discuss this with you to ensure that similar temps are working at similar grades across the university. The table shows the overall cost to the department for each grade:

  • Holiday pay = Holiday pay accrued per hour works (this is included in overall cost)
  • Hourly rate = Hourly rate excluding holiday pay and National Insurance
  • NI rebate = If your department is eligible for an NI rebate you will be notified.

Please note that if you have a temporary worker providing cover for a permanent employee it is only necessary to pay them at the lowest point for the same grade.
