Pay scales and grades

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

Appointment to a job with the council is usually to a particular grade within the relevant pay scale. We base progression through a grade on factors such as skills, experience, qualifications, performance and length of service. We will identify the grade and relevant salary scale for a particular job in the advert or the accompanying literature.

The Local Government Association website has further information about pay in local government.
