Senior manager pay scales

Senior officer pay bands have 3 pay points. They are a:

  • lower point for a post-holder with sufficient competence or experience but with some development needs – this is expected to apply to some appointments at the time of recruitment
  • median point for a fully competent and appropriately experienced or qualified post-holder – this is expected to apply to most appointments
  • higher point for an exceptional post-holder – the difference between the median and higher point will be paid only as an additional non-consolidated payment for 'exceptional' performance
