Senior salaries

The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (Statutory Instrument 2015/234) requires local authorities to publish the following information:

  • The number of employees whose salary in that year was at least £50,000 in brackets of £5,000
  • Details of salary and job title of certain senior employees whose salary is at least £50,000
  • Employees whose salaries are £150,000 or more must also be identified by name
  • In addition, the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 requires us to publish a list of responsibilities for example, the services and functions they are responsible for, budget held and number of staff, we are also required to include details of bonuses and ‘benefits in kind’ for all employees whose salary exceeds £50,000.

Our corporate directors and heads of service (chief officers) are responsible for different areas of our work, which can be viewed on our chief officers' information page. To view our organisation structure chart, which details our top three levels of senior management, visit our management structure page.

Employee posts and pay scales

We have provided an entire listing of the individual jobs undertaken which also identifies how much each of these positions are paid. Changes to our management structure are made from time to time and this will be reflected in the list of chief officer posts as defined by the Localism Act 2011.
