Pay Settlement Agreement 2022/2023

Manx Care has agreed (through joint staff side unions representing the different staff groups) the following pay settlement for the 2022/2023 financial year.

The total consolidated award for 22/23 amounts to 6% plus a £1,500 increase in each pay point. The actual percentage increase differs for each pay grade, with the greatest increases for lower grades. But on average, this means a combined 8.75% pay increase for 22/23.

Since April 2021, when Manx Care was established, salaries have increased by 13% on average. The increases actually range from 11%-19% depending on grade. Most of our staff (Band 7 & below) will receive increases of more than 13%. In contrast, salaries for PSC Staff have increased by 7%.

Please see the list below for more context:


  • 21/22 - 4%
