Considering that the Prime Minister earns not much more than the £141k advertised for this post, might chief execs being paid far too much, for what is essentially a comfortable 9 to 5 office admin job?

Nostradamus, if you look at neighbouring authorities: Broxbourne, East Herts, Epping Forest, Hertsmere and Stevenage, this is the going rate. If you want to attract talent, you have to follow the market.

Ah to work for public services. No targets, no penalties for poor performance. If that was a private sector job it would be £100k plus bonuses/ share options for hitting targets. Its no wonder public services and finances are in a state. Also if they think higher wages attract the talent, then surely that is an insult to the workers at the sharp end who get paid below average rates for the same job in the private sector.
