Your annual leave entitlement

How much annual leave you get, public holidays, coronavirus (COVID-19) travel advice for arriving or leaving Scotland.

How much annual leave you get

The annual leave year starts on 1 January and ends on 31 December each year. 

If you work full time, you'll get:

  • 20 days for less than five years' service
  • 25 days after five years' service
  • 28 days after 10 years' service
  • 29 days after 15 years' service
  • 30 days after 20 years' service.

If you work part time, job share or do compressed working, you'll get a pro-rata amount of annual leave days based on how many days you work a week.

Your annual leave balance doesn't include public holidays. 

If you're a craft employee, you should check your terms and conditions for your annual leave entitlement as this may be different.

Public holidays

If you normally get public holidays off, this won't change. 

If you are already scheduled to work or have been asked to support your service on a public holiday, you will be paid at the normal public holiday rates. 

If you work part time, job share or do compressed working, you'll get a pro-rata amount of public holidays based on how many days you work a week.

If you work term time only, your normal holiday arrangements still apply.
