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 and will be updated after the Senior Management Review has been completed (November 2014).
Scope of Disclosure
In line with the Government's guidance we have include all staff who earn over £58,200.
Data is published at an individual and organisational level.
At an individual level we have published data on each individual's name (subject to consent), job title, service area and full time equivalent (FTE) salary.
In addition, we have published the accountabilities and responsibilities for senior roles (defined as Chief Executives and all 1st tier officers).
At an organisational level we have published data on the number of staff we employ, our total expenditure and service responsibilities.
The budget responsibilities are detailed in the Council 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 mean average earnings across the organisation. The current median salary earned within the Council is £17,160.00 and the current pay multiple is 8.27. 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.
