Pay scale query

I am currently at a job that has a pay scale of C3 to C4. The job was advertised as ranging from C3 to C4.

Every year we have increases based on performance and I have been told at that I am at the top of C3, therefore cannot proceed any further. (so not taking into account the job was offered to go to c4)

does this sound correct? It's very frustrating!

It usually means you are placed on either C3 OR C4, not that you automatically move onto the higher pay scale when you hit the top of c3. Processing to a higher pay scale is achieved by getting a promotion.

For instance, sometimes in Civil Service a role is advertised across two grades and the final offer is made depending on experience, and you’d go onto the relevant pay scale. If, for instance, the job is g6/G7, if you’re placed on the lower G7 payscale you can only get to G6 by going through a promotion exercise.

Thank you. that sort of makes sense although getting a promotion for the same job sounds annoying. ah well time to look further afield then.
