Details of the coding frame and guidance for coding contracts to levels is available in the Combined levels document.

These levels are already used to categorise staff in the salary surveys undertaken by UCEA (senior staff) and XpertHR (for staff below level of professor) on UCEA's behalf. When assigning Contract.LEVELS the allocation from the UCEA and XpertHR surveys should be used as a basis, but will need to be updated to reflect the position at the end of the reporting period.

The coding frames and descriptors are used with permission of UCEA and XpertHR.
