The Aston Pay Supplement

The Aston Pay Supplement is a non-contractual, discretionary additional payment which may be paid following an annual review pay review. The supplement is designed to ensure that Aston’s rates of pay are fair and compare with the rates recommended by the Living Wage Foundation, or are adjusted so that differences in pay based on levels of responsibility are maintained.


The Aston Pay Supplement will be reviewed annually, taking into account these same considerations, and therefore may be increased, reduced or withdrawn dependent on the rate of increase in national pay and comparator rates.

The current rates of supplementation apply as follows (valid from 1 August 2017):
