The pay system will consist of pay scales covering spine points, together with Corporate Leadership Pay Scales. Illustrative examples are shown at Annex 1 until finalised pay scales are developed for all roles within the PSC, by agreement with the PSC and unions. The determination of where job roles assimilate on the new scales, after the effective date of the Agreement will be made in accordance with the Assimilation and Verification Process at Annex 2
Within each pay scale there will be three spine points (Minimum, Mid and Maximum points respectively) with 8% incremental intervals to allow pay progression in post. The normal starting pay for all new employees will be the minimum point on the relevant pay scale. Employees will progress incrementally on an annual basis to the maximum point in their pay scale, provided their performance is satisfactory and they demonstrate the agreed knowledge and appropriate skills.
