    StarStarStarStarStar Current DES/SDA in Bristol, England

    Sick is 6 months full pay then 6 month half pay then...? If your a old timer there may be more, i.e. full pay ad infinitum. However as apart of 'modernisation' should you get a promotion you have to accept new contract terms which lessen in terms of holiday and sick benefits. Note also that promotion now is not as £ attractive as it was, e.g. C2 to C1 (now SA to professional 2) was ~25% uplift and C1 to B2 (Professional 2 to professional 1) was ~ 33% . Now its only 10% of of pay or ~80% of the advertised salary (noting there is no longer any promote from within you have to apply for the publicly advertised positions via CV.) Also should you win a new position at the same level you get nothing where as a new recruit or some one promoted in to that position someone will get the pay amounts above. effectively meaning you're paid less for broadening your experiences than newbies! And of course that also means your pension is similarly penalised compared to your new 'same level' colleagues.
