NJC Salary Scales

Using local government salary scales in the voluntary sector

Contracts of employment may state that salaries are set in line with local government salaries.  There are a number of options used in the voluntary and community sector, the most widely used being the National Joint Council (NJC) salary scales.

Current NJC Salary Scales

The pay and terms and conditions of employment for many local government services' workers are set out by the National Joint Council for Local Government Services.  More details from the Local Government Employers.
