Policy Pay and Reward Strategy

8. Promotion

Where individuals are promoted to a higher grade, the salary level should be pitched at the bottom of the new grade. 

If the individual is promoted between 1 April and 30 September, this employee would not receive an increment increase until the following April.  If the individual is promoted between 1 October and 31 March, this employee will receive an increment rise after six months and thereafter April.


This is the mechanism by which employees will be rewarded for temporarily covering a post with greater responsibility than their normal duties. More information is available in the Pay & Grading section of the employment handbook.
