We believe it's important to be open and transparent about what we pay our chief executive and senior officers. Below, you can view the pay and benefits senior officers receive at Brent Council.
The chief executive's current salary is £202,880. This is set using the nationally recognised Hay reward scheme which is used by the majority of local councils around the country.
In Brent, the chief executive also holds the position of returning officer and is therefore responsible for the conduct of elections in the borough. They receive a separate fee for this role. This varies depending on the type and frequency of elections.
After the Chief Executive, there are three tiers of senior manager in Brent:
- Strategic director pay rates range from £136,167 to £153,927 (4 posts)
- Operational director pay rates range from £100,643 to £129,490 (13 posts)
- Head of service pay rates range from £57,430 to £94,722 (40 posts)
The average pay of staff at this level is £96,881.
More details on what we pay our senior staff can be found on our open data site.
Brent Council staff received a 2% pay increase April 2019.
