Senior officer salaries

Pay and benefits for senior officers are agreed by the appointments and remuneration committee. Decisions are made by evaluating the content of each job using a set of nationally recognised criteria. Each job is then benchmarked against other national and local jobs before arriving at a specific salary, taking into account factors such as the competitiveness of the market for the role and the experience of the candidate.

  • Full council decide on any new appointment where pay (incorporating all payments and benefits in kind) exceeds £100,000
  • Full council approve any severance payments where the compensation payments exceed £100,000
