The council currently pays 24.4% of your salary into the highly rated local government pension scheme. This is a career average scheme, meaning your pension level will be determined based on your career average earnings and not the performance of the stock markets. This means that your total reward package is basic salary plus an additional 24.4% pension scheme employer contribution.
