SJC scales are local government pay scales which are extensively used in the voluntary sector.

They are a result of negotiations between trade unions and local government employers, SCVO is not involved in these negotiations in any way.

You can keep up to date with the negotiations for 2017 on the Unison Scotland website.

We are often asked what grade a particular job should be placed at on the SJC scales but SCVO cannot advise on this.

SCVO has negotiated a special deal on a subscription to the COSLA Employers Website on behalf of SCVO members only.

SCVO Members can contact us to gain access the COSLA website.

If your organisation is not a member of SCVO you can find out more and apply online here.
