Senior staff pay

We publish details of the pay for all staff earning salaries of £50,000 per annum or more.

The Local government transparency code 2015 requires the council to publish data on the number of employees whose remuneration in each year was at least £50,000.

This data includes:

  • the number of employees whose remuneration in that year was at least £50,000 in brackets of £5,000
  • details of remuneration 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
  • 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.

Benefits in kind

The benefits in kind column relates solely to car expenses. Certain officers, depending upon their job role, are provided with a contribution either towards a leased car or the running costs of their own vehicle.

Pensions

The regulations governing the pension scheme are set nationally. Employees are expected to make contributions of between five per cent and 7.5 per cent into the pension fund (the more you earn the more you contribute). This employee contribution is matched by an employer contribution which is currently 12.5 per cent. New pension rules applying from 1st April 2010 mean that senior staff may be taxed on both the employer and employee contributions at the higher rate of tax.
 

Employees salary over £50,000

Uttlesford District Council had 22 employees receiving more than £50,000 remuneration for the year 2020/21 (excluding employer's pension contributions).
