Pay policy

The Localism Act 2011 requires local authorities to prepare and approve a senior pay policy statement for each financial year and full council approves the Northamptonshire County Council pay policy each year.

The NCC pay policy covers all employees and not just senior officers.

Below is a list of appendices to the NCC pay policy:

Employee benefits

As part of being an open and transparent authority we are publishing, along with those pay policy documents required of us, benefits that all of our employees are eligible to receive. This document contains information on annual leave, childcare vouchers, flexible working, sick pay scheme and pension schemes.

Pay multiple

The Transparency Code requires local authorities to publish their pay multiple. A pay multiple is the ratio of the pay of an organisation’s top earner to that of the mean/median earner. 

The council does not explicitly set the remuneration of any individual or group of posts by reference to the multiple of another post or group of posts, as it uses the HAY job evaluation scheme.

Salary information as of April 2017 is set out below and reflects the Council’s organisation as at 31 March 2017 under the new federated operating model. This information is updated annually.
