6. Procedure and approval
The need for a market supplement can be proposed by the relevant Head of Service or Corporate Manager.
The Head of Service/Corporate Manager will put forward their case for applying a market supplement using the criteria outlined in section 2 of this document, to the Head of Organisational Development. Where necessary, market data may need to be collated from external agencies to provide evidence and support for both the need for a market supplement and the proposed amount of that supplement.
The Strategic Management Team, the Corporate Organisational Development Manager and UNISON will consider the proposal and then decide the outcome of the proposal.
Once agreed, the individual(s) concerned will be required to sign an amendment to their Contract of Employment.
