You may receive an allowance in addition to your standard salary. Allowances are granted for various reasons, such as working unconventional hours, substituting for a colleague and in reward for exceptional work. Whether an allowance is included in your pension or benefits calculation depends on the situation.
This type of allowance is granted for outstanding work performance and is generally paid out over the course of one year.
You may be offered a market allowance if the university is keen to retain your services (e.g. if there is a shortage in the organisation of the qualities you possess).
A substitution allowance may be offered if you fill a higher-ranking position for 30 days or more.
