Money Matters


Employee financial wellbeing is very important to us and we believe in paying our employees fairly and ensuring that our salaries are competitive in the marketplace.


Salary increases


Most employees are paid an incremental progression salary with an increase in rate of pay following 12 and 24 months service.  Many positions offer the opportunity of following a career development scheme where further salary progression is achieved by meeting set development criteria.

Incremental progression for teaching staff follows the national terms laid down by the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers (SNCT).  For the majority this will mean an annual increase in pay for up to a period of six years depending on initial placement on the pay scale.

Aberdeenshire Council is committed to paying all employees no less than the Scottish Government Living Wage.
