As a company, we work with our Company Council and Unite as our recognized trade union, to negotiate and agree an annual pay deal every 2 years.  Any agreed increase is then applied to salaries in January.  In addition to this, we operate a performance related pay system, whereby employees receive a merit payment linked to their annual appraisal.

If you are on a trainee scheme or apprenticeship, the performance related pay system is slightly different, and more information can be found on the Apprentice Scheme pages.
