Salaries are paid on the 28th of each month (which will be brought forward if the 28th falls on a weekend or Bank Holiday) directly into a bank or building society account. The rate of pay is determined through a job evaluation scheme and new employees are appointed to the first point in the salary scale and the grade for the post.
Pay increments are awarded annually until the top of the grade is achieved. For employees starting between April and September inclusive, incremental progression commences on the 1 April in the following calendar year. For employees who commence employment between October and March the first increment is applied 6 months following appointment and on 1 April each year thereafter.
We apply the cost of living increases which are negotiated nationally.
