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 senor 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.

We are looking for two new members to join our review body. As a member of the SSRB, you will have the opportunity to work on a challenging agenda and gain unique insights into a cross-section of public service professions at senior levels. You will also have the chance to play a key role in the future direction of the SSRB helping to shape its thinking and recommendations. The SSRB has up to 8 members from a range of backgrounds, who pool their collective expertise to inform discussions.

The role of the member will involve;

  • Preparing for and attending the meetings of the Senior Salaries Review Body throughout the year
  • Making an active contribution to discussions drawing upon your skills, expertise and subject knowledge with an emphasis on providing constructive challenge to complex proposals
  • Building and maintaining strong professional relationships with key stakeholders
  • Representing the SSRB and conducting quality research and data collection through quality conversations with representatives of the remit groups, which will form part of the SSRB’s recommendations and report
  • Producing well-researched and evidence-based recommendations for all the remit groups and undertaking additional projects of work as set out in the SSRB’s terms of reference
  • Adhering to the seven principles of Public Life
  • Complying at all times with the ‘Code of Conduct for Board Members of Public Bodies’ and with the rules relating to the use of public funds and to conflicts of interest set out in Managing Public Money
  • Not misusing information gained in the course of public service duties for personal gain or for political profit, nor seeking to use the opportunity of public service to promote private interests or those of connected persons or organisations

Skills/experience required

We are seeking to recruit two experienced non-executive Board members who can demonstrate competencies in the following areas:

Essential

  • Practical experience of remuneration, pay and performance management questions for Senior Staff, from an operational or strategic standpoint.
  • Experience of working at senior board level, ideally in a large organisation
  • The ability to understand the different challenges faced by the SSRB’s remit groups, and the context within which public sector pay decisions are made

  • Being able to demonstrate a sound understanding of and strong commitment to equal opportunities, public service values and the seven principles of Public Life, enabling you to act impartially and uphold the independence of the Review Body

Desirable
