Senior officer salaries

Under the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, we're required to publish:

  • the number of employees whose remuneration in that year was at least £50,000 in £5,000 brackets
  • details of remuneration and job title of certain senior employees whose salary is at least £50,000
  • the names of employees whose salaries are £150,000 or more

In addition to this requirement, we must place a link on our website to these published data or place the data itself on our website, together with a list of responsibilities (for example, the services and functions they are responsible for, budget held and number of staff) and details of bonuses and ‘benefits-in-kind’, for all employees whose salary exceeds £50,000.

The key differences between the requirements under this Code and the Regulations referred to above is the addition of a list of responsibilities, the inclusion of bonus details for all senior employees whose salary exceeds £50,000 and publication of the data on the authority’s website.
