Third Level - Salary Scales

The salary scales on this website are those set out in the latest circular letters issued by the relevant Government Department. However, in some cases, there can be a delay between the publication of the circular letter authorising payment and the actual payment of the increases to members. Where delays occur, payment is backdated to the relevant date set out in the circular letter.

*Effective from 1st March 2019, scale points 4 and 8 have been removed from the post-1st January 2011 ‘new entrant’ Assistant Lecturer scale. The measure means that new and recent entrants will ‘jump’ these points and progress up the scale more quickly. The implications of the measure vary, depending on the career stage of a member.
