SENIOR EXECUTIVE REMUNERATION POLICIES AND PRACTICES – KEY MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL

Senior executives are offered a three-year contract. The chief executive officer is appointed by the council after consultation with the minister. The chief executive officer appoints other key management personnel and consults with the minister if the position includes the roles of chief financial officer or principal legal officer. Contracts are renewed subject to satisfactory performance.

Remuneration is determined in accordance with senior executive service salary bands. Senior executives are placed within the band in accordance with the position’s responsibilities and accountabilities. The salary bands, in practice for at least the last 10 years, are adjusted only in accordance with salary increases as part of the organisation’s enterprise bargaining process. Senior executive remuneration is detailed in the annual estimates approved by the minister. Other employment conditions are included in the contract of employment, or standard employment conditions such as leave entitlements are referenced to the enterprise agreement.

The elected chair (three-year term) is a fulltime position and is part of the Accountable Authority, and classified as key management personnel, and receives the allowance determined by the Commonwealth Remuneration Tribunal.
