The Office Holder Allowance is an additional payment for academic staff who have taken on significant extra administrative responsibilities. For Heads of Department, rates are set by the University according to the size and scale of activity in the department. For other roles, departments may agree payments up to a financial limit, but payments above the equivalent of a schedule V allowance (currently £7,567 p.a.) must be approved by the division.
