  2. £200,000 for COO DE&S. There’s value :wink:
  3. A comparison with the u.s. dept of defence would be interesting, also Tesco's , start googling , free mars bar to the first with all the gen. :eek:
  4. some big earners there. Bit of a pay jump going from CGS to CDS though, could buy a jolly nice car for that...

    What's the big deal with senior officers salaries being published? The Senior Salaries Review Body pay scales are not secret, they are made public every year:
  6. US DoD pay rates for serving officers (and civil servants) are limited by their "no more than the elected officials" rules - they will be on a max of about $180k basic pay, about £124k (so just under point 1 on our 3-star scale). Err - oops - if they are in certain jobs, they get on to Schedule 1, which is a max of $240k, so £166k - tier point 1 of our 4-star scale ...

    Terry Leahy makes over £5m per year ...

    Edited to add - if they are serious about getting down to £58k - that's not much more than the basic pay for a super-annuated Major ...

  8. Compare the figures for these two public organisations.

    Number of employees 2009

    MOD: 281,000 (link).
    BBC: 20,000+ (link)

    Budget 2008/9

    MOD: £33.6 bn (link)
    BBC: £4.5bn (link)

    Now compare the salaries of the MoD's few top executives, literally responsible for making life and death decisions, with their counterparts in the BBC, mostly responsible for entertainment. Notwithstanding the unpublished millions per year earned by other BBC employees such as Jonathan Ross, etc (link), bear in mind that CDS is the only person in the MOD who earns over £200k:

    The BBC executive salary bill
    Does anyone else think we've got the balance wrong?

  11. Looking at these, and working in the civil service with a healthy disrespect for my "leader", I can easily see where the government can save some money...
  12. WOW Cat believe how little the top brass get compared with an average NHS trust or PCT (and there are shed loads of them) Ch Exec 200k+
    Director 150k+, Deputy Director 100k
    I think CDS and the heads of Services carry a lot more on their shoulders
  13. No, they should be compared with those at the top of their profession in private industry.

    Is the government making those figures available?
  14. No, the same criteria does not apply. Private industry failures are dismissed, public sector failures are at best promoted, sidelined or hidden. Reduce public sector salaries by 50%, you will still get good applicants, I would even argue that the public sector pension should remain in place in this case.
