With the exception of teaching staff and associated youth and school advisory roles where pay is determined by National consultation groups, pay for all staff is governed by the Employment in Hampshire County Council (EHCC) Committee. The EHCC Committee comprises elected County Councillors from the main political parties and has responsibility for local terms and conditions of employment for staff within the County Council’s pay framework.
Details of the County Council’s approach to pay for those staff and managers whose pay levels are determined by Hampshire County Council, including Senior Managers, are contained in the County Council’s Pay Policy Statement.

The numbers of Chief Officers have reduced as part of our wider efficiency programme. As part of this, we have already reduced the number of Chief Officers by 20%. The combined salaries for the top team represents 0.2 per cent of the County Council’s total pay bill.
The Salaries of Chief Officers are set by the cross party Employment in Hampshire County Council Committee. In response to reduced levels of Government funding in the future, we have agreed a range of measures to streamline our operations and transform the way the authority operates and delivers services.
Details of the salary for the Chief Executive and other Chief Officers are published annually in the County Council's Statement of Accounts.
