Pay and benefits – what we offer

What will I be paid?

Support staff are paid on the National Joint Council (NJC) Outer London Pay Scale.

Annual salary progression

If your appointment was made between 1st April and 30th September, incremental progression within your grade will take place on 1st April the following year and then on 1st April each year thereafter until the maximum of the scale is reached. This is subject to the continued satisfactory performance of your duties.

If your appointment was made between 1st October and 31st March, incremental progression within your grade will take place six months after the appointment and then on 1st April each year thereafter until the maximum of the scale is reached. This is subject to the continued satisfactory performance of your duties.

Allowances

Allowances are determined by individual schools. They may be paid on either a permanent or temporary basis and are awarded at the discretion of the Headteacher, in consultation with the school's Governing Body.

Pension contribution

Once you are in full-time employment, you will automatically be entered into the LGPS pension scheme. You will be required to make a contribution equivalent to between 5.5% and 7.5% of your salary, with the LA currently contributing a further 19.7%.

Sick pay entitlement

As a new support employee with no previous service, in your first year of working for Enfield, when absent from work due to illness, you will be entitled to 1 months' full pay (after completing 4 months service) plus 2 months at half-pay. 

Leisure discounts

The health and wellbeing of our staff is important to us. As employees of the London Borough of Enfield, you are eligible for discounts on membership of Enfield Leisure Centres and various organisations to help you make choices about your lifestyle.
