Organisation Chart

The council's organisation chart covers the top three management tiers of the organisation, which are the Chief Executive, Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Directors, and the Corporate Directors.

The chart provides information for these senior managers on their grade, job title, department, service area, type of contract (permanent or temporary), whether the post is shared, contact details, salary band in £5,000 brackets, and the maximum salary for the grade.

Pay Multiple

The council's pay multiple data shows the ratio between the highest paid taxable earnings for the given year, and the median earnings figure for the whole of the Council's workforce.

The Median is the half-way point for half of the total number of employees between the lowest and highest remuneration value.
