Senior managers' pay
The chief executive's pay scale is set using the nationally recognised Hay reward scheme which is used by the majority of local councils around the country. The chief executive's current salary is £202,880.
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 variable fee for this. The exact amount depends on the type and frequency of elections.
