  • Increments


    Most pay grades are incremental and the number of increments is determined by the particular grade of the role. An increment is an increase in pay that is considered annually until the maximum of the grade is reached.

  • A Living Wage Employer


    Cardiff Council is a Living Wage employer. We believe that paying the Living Wage is a key indicator of an employer’s commitment to fair work practices. That is why the Council is now working to promote the Living Wage across the wider local business community. Our aim is to support and encourage as many local businesses as possible to commit to paying their employees the Living Wage.
