Staff Salary Information (18/08/2016) (R013842)

Thank you for your request dated 2 August 2016 under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for current salary information in relation to a number of occupations.  I also refer to our e-mail to you of the same date where we confirmed we could only provide you with information relating to COPFS salaries and provided information on other authorities you might approach for information. 

Under Section 25(1) of FOISA, we are not required to provide information in response to a request if it is already reasonably accessible to you.  I can advise that some of the information in relation to current salaries in COPFS is contained within a previous FOI response which is published on our website. I have attached a link to that response for your information.

Please be aware that thePay Offer for 2016/17 has not yet been agreed and accordingly the Pay Offer for 2015/16 is still current.  However the trainee rate was uplifted in June 2016 to £17,545 for year 1 and £21,012 for year 2.

We no longer use the terminology of District Procurator Fiscal or Area Procurator Fiscal, however the equivalent of District Procurator Fiscal is either at Band G (so is contained in the above previously published response), or at Senior Civil Service (SCS) 1 grade and the equivalent of Area Procurator Fiscal is SCS 1A or 2 grade depending on the size of the Sheriffdom or area of work.

I attach a copy of the current SCS pay scales for those grades for your information.
