Salary information on senior management staff
Local Transparency - Requirement to Publish Senior Salary Information
As part of the Government's requirement for local transparency, Local Authorities are required to publish salary data on their senior management staff. The information published takes a snap-shot of our organisation as at 31st March 2016.
Scope of Disclosure
In line with the Government's guidance we have included all staff who earn over £50,000 per annum.
Data has been published at two levels:
1) Top 3 levels of organisation (Chief Executive, Executive Directors and Assistant Directors)
At this level we have published the job title, grade and salary, job description, structures, contractual status and contact details.
2) 50K remuneration and above
Remuneration is all taxable earnings for the given year, including base salary, variable pay, bonuses, allowances and the cash value of any benefits in kind. At this level we have published the job title, grade and salary, contractual status, key services and function responsibilities, budget held in 2014/15, number of staff and the salary ceiling.
The budget responsibilities are detailed in the Council's Strategic Budget document:
The Council publishes its pay multiple in line with the Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency. The pay multiple compares the highest paid employee to the median average earnings across the organisation. The current median salary earned within the Council is £17,333.04 and the current pay multiple is 8.19. The Council aims to remain below a pay multiple of 10.
For further information
If you require further information about any of the payments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org setting out the details of the payment including the Document Number and what additional information you require. Such request will be handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, and the Council aims to be able to provide a response to your query within 20 working days.
Re-Use of the data
The data is freely reusable under the same Terms and Conditions from the Open Government Licence.
