Chief Officer and other senior appointments
During the 2017/18 financial year there were no changes to the PSAA management team.
Remuneration policy for the Chief Officer and senior staff
For the Chief Officer, remuneration was set by the PSAA Board. For the remaining members of the management team, remuneration was set by the Chief Officer, in line with PSAA’s normal terms and conditions of employment.
The main details of the remuneration package for the Chief Officer and members of the management team were as follows:
- pension arrangement: PSAA operates a defined contribution plan with the same level of benefit for all its members. The Chief Officer and all staff were eligible to join the scheme. PSAA’s contribution is 10% of salary for all staff.
- other terms of employment: the Chief Officer and management team all had permanent employment contracts. Taxable benefits comprise a travel card for travel within London for all staff based in London. The Chief Officer and management team are required to give eight weeks’ notice if they resign. All other terms and conditions are the same as for other staff.
