Market Supplement Policy

In exceptional circumstances, where the Council is able to demonstrate that recruitment and retention issues are impacting on service delivery the payment of a temporary additional element of pay paid in addition to basic salary may be justified. This should be supported with clear evidence that the Council's rate of pay for a defined post or group of posts falls below the required level in relation to the comparator market.

This policy will provide services with information on the specific circumstances under which it may be possible to use market supplements to enhance the total remuneration package offered to postholders and applicants in order to attract and retain the required calibre of staff.
