Senior manager salaries

The Government has a clear commitment to greater transparency of public information. In line with the publication of salary data for other senior public servants, local authorities are expected to publish data on their senior management staff.

For any senior employee whose salary is greater than £150,000 per year, they must be identified by name. For those senior employees who earn less than £150,000, we are required to list them individually by way of job title. 

You can see below the salaries paid (within £5,000 bands) to our senior managers.
