Vacancy Description

Member with Board level experience of Collective Bargaining from an employee perspective.

The AFPRB provides independent, evidence-based advice on Armed Forces’ pay to the Prime Minister and SofS for Defence.  In making recommendations, it takes into account the need to recruit, retain and motivate suitable people in the context of Service life, Government policies for improving services, funding, the inflation target and the need for Armed Forces’ pay to be broadly comparable with pay levels in civilian life.
