Wales: NJC Support Staff 2023 Pay Award

The 2023 pay award for support staff employed under the NJC Green Book was agreed on 1 November 2023. The pay award for points 1-43 is a flat rate of £1,925 per point, backdated to 1 April 2023. All locally determined pay points above the maximum of the pay spine but graded below deputy chief officer, should be increased by 3.88%.

Allowances, including overtime rates, should be increased by 3.88%  

The National Employers are encouraging employers to implement the pay award as swiftly as possible.

Backpay for employees who have left employment since 1 April 2023
If requested by an ex-employee to do so, the National Employers recommend that employers should pay any monies due to that employee from 1 April 2023 to the employee’s last day of employment (guidance on this can be found in the details of the pay award below).

Full details of the award can be found here. The National Employers have also issued a circular that provides some context to this year’s pay round which can be found here.
