Note concerning 'Single Status Harmonisation' exercise
For your information, the Council is in the process of implementing a national Single Status agreement to harmonise the pay and other terms and conditions of all of its employees (with the exception of jobs designated as 'Craft' posts). This includes assessing every post in the organisation using a common job evaluation scheme to determine its new grade and, therefore, rate of pay. Therefore please be aware that, the rate of pay for jobs could go up, stay the same or go down when the new pay structure is implemented.
