|The Senior Salaries Review Body is an independent body which provides independent advice to the Prime Minister, the Lord Chancellor, the Secretary of State for Defence, the Secretary of State for Health and the Home Secretary on the pay of Senior Civil Servants, the judiciary, senior officers of the armed forces, certain senior managers in the NHS, Police and Crime Commissioners and chief police officers.
Since it was established in May 1971, the SSRB has gained a reputation as a highly respected pay review body. The SSRB continues to tackle a number of challenges: defence reforms may impact on senior military officers’ remuneration; the development of a new SCS pay framework; NHS reorganisation is changing the nature of the very senior remit group; and more recently, a major review of the judicial salary structure.
The Senior Salaries Review Body receives written and oral evidence from both the Government and representative organisations covering its remit. Other interested parties may also submit evidence. Pay review bodies weigh the evidence submitted and their own independent research to formulate recommendations on the remuneration of their remit groups. Their recommendations are submitted to the Government and, where appropriate, the devolved administrations. The Government’s response usually attracts extensive media coverage.
Consequently, the SSRB plays a highly visible and sensitive advisory role, for which the very best judgement and expertise is required. We are seeking applicants of proven ability, stature, and achievement who have a thorough understanding or rich experience of top manager reward and performance issues.
