Staff pay and conditions financial information

We're committed to being as open as possible about our spending. 

This includes publishing information about our senior officers' pay and details of how salaries for all council employees are determined.

Please note that schools based employees fall outside the council’s pay policy and the data provided does not include schools.

Staff pay and benefits

Information about staff pay and benefits, including our pay policy statement, is available on our website and staff intranet.

Senior officers' pay

The ratio between the Chief Executive’s salary and the median (average) earnings of all other council staff (excluding schools based staff) was 5.9 as of 31 March 2015. This has been calculated according to the guidance contained in The Local Government Transparency Code on the gov.uk website. We update the calculation once a year.
