I have 6 years pubic service from before I had my kids and have recently gone back working. I was on a LSI on Grade 4 salary. Having relocated I am now hoping to get a Clerical Officer Grade 3 position and was wondering what salary I'd likely start off at if I am successful. I did hear that my previous service would stand to me. Thanks in advance!
I think it will.
I joined the Civil Service 25 years ago, after taking some time off work to look after my two young children.
I had previously had 12 years in the Public Service.
I had to start back at the bottom of the scale (awful!), but there was some ruling back sometime around 2003/4 or so, that meant I could apply retrospectively for incremental credit in respect of my previous public service. Therefore I would think that it should happen automatically for you.
grade 4 isn't the same as a Clerical Officer Grade 3, that can be an issue. As you can't claim increments for non analogous service.
Ok, thanks for the replies doc22 and gerbilgranny. Hopefully my service will be taken into account if I get back into Public Service!
Can anyone tell me is flexitime and flexi-leave a thing in the public sector or is that just civil service roles?
It's in public service aswell
@2 fast is it used in all public sector organisations or only some just out of curiosity? I have accepted a role with a public sector organisation but see no reference to either in the staff handbook.
From my experience it is my company don't have it in the handbook but have a separate policy
It’s not in all public sector organisations! I know of several that don’t offer flexi-time!
I would recommend asking directly if you want to know for sure.
