Service FAQ

Here you’ll find answers to some of the common questions asked about service.

Does my service as a Sessional Worker count towards my continuous service?


My work history on iTrent doesn't match my actual work history?

iTrent won’t reflect an employee’s full service history due to the date employee information was migrated to iTrent, i.e. November 2015. Whatever post an employee was in at this date, will show at their original start date.

I have started in a post or I'm considering applying for a post with the council and was previously/am employed with Amey or NHS. Will this service be recognised?

For the purpose of calculating annual leave only, continuous service with the Health Board; Civil Service; Registered Social Landlords; Communities Scotland, as well as Public Private Partnerships where employees have transferred from North Lanarkshire Council to the Partnerships and have re-appointed to posts within the Council without a break in service is included. 

For further information, please contact the People Helpdesk on 01698 403151 or alternatively email them at ESC-HelpDeskTeam@northlan.gov.uk.
