Pay scales and grades

We use the following pay scales, based on regional and national local government negotiations.

Progression through a grade is based on factors such as skills, experience, qualifications, performance and length of service. The grade and relevant salary scale for a particular job is identifiable either through the advert or accompanying literature.
