It’s not only councillors that are ripping us of in this time of crisis, council heads and deputies are also making a killing.
In January this year the top 13 earners were making a combined £1,255,699 annually.
• Chief Executive – £145,000
• Director of Corporate Services – £130,000
• Director for People’s Services (Director of Adult Social Services; Director of Children’s Services) – £120,000
• Director for Places and Communities – £120,000
• Director of Public Health £97,478
• Asst. Director to Children and Young People’s Provider Services – £78,231
• Asst. Director to People’s Services Commissioning – £78,231
• Asst. Director to Economic, Environmental and Cultural Services – £76,176
• Asst. Director to Place Based Commissioning – £76,176
• Asst. Director to Homes and Community Services – £76,176
• Asst. Director of Law, Governance and Resilience (Monitoring Officer) – £90,000
• Asst. Director People, Policy and Partnerships – £78,231
• Chief Officer, Finance and Commercial Services – £90,000
Following on from our call that councillors should stop claiming allowances, we think the top earners at the council should take a substantial pay cut. They are not employed in a for-profit enterprise, they are public servants, paid by us to deliver services to us.
The people in these jobs that are continuing to take a wage so offensive as this are nothing short of anti-social.
Their greed hurts the rest of Herefordshire.
