To allocate the designation of Deputy Chief Executive
To allocate the designation of Deputy Chief Executive to Ian Fitzpatrick, Director of Regeneration and Planning and to agree the associated pay scale:
Point 1 £115,000
Point 2 £117,000
Point 3 £119,000
Point 4 £121,000
Point 5 £123,000
Point 6 £125,000
Previous considerations of an EBC Recruitment Panel and LDC Appointments Committee agreed to delegate authority to the Chief Executive, in consultation with Council Leaders and with support from the Assistant Director of Human Resources, to reallocate the DCE designation to one of the front line Director roles at an appropriate point in time.
Roles on the CMT have salary levels set through benchmarking exercises within the local government employment market, taking into account the relative cost of living of the local area.
Consideration has been given to the existing pay grade for the Director of Regeneration and Planning role along with the additional responsibilities that the Deputy Chief Executive status brings, and a new pay scale is proposed. The proposed scale of 6 points is in line with other salary bands, as would be progression through the band.
The appropriate remuneration level has been researched to ensure that it aligns broadly with market norms for relevant local government and public sectors. Taking into account the scale of our shared service arrangement between Lewes and Eastbourne, the proposed salary scale is considered to be appropriate.
The EBC Recruitment Panel and LDC Appointments Committee that met in 2018 considered a range of recommendations.
