Senior Salaries Review Body - Judicial Member

£300 per day

c40 days per annum

This is both a challenging and exciting time to join the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB).

Since it was established in May 1971, the SSRB has gained a reputation as a highly respected pay review body. The SSRB continues to tackle a number of challenges: defence reforms may impact on senior military officers’ remuneration; the development of a new SCS pay framework and more recently, a major review of the judicial salary structure.

The SSRB is now looking to appoint a new Member from a Judicial or legal background to join its board.

As a member of the SSRB, you will have the opportunity to work on a challenging agenda and gain unique insights into a cross-section of public service professions at senior levels. You will also have the chance to play a key role in the future direction of the SSRB - helping to shape its thinking and recommendations.

The role of member will involve:

Producing well-researched and evidenced-based recommendations for all the remit groups

Producing a clear report setting out the SSRB’s reasoning for its recommendations

Undertaking additional projects of work as set out in the SSRB’s terms of reference

Making an active contribution to discussions with an emphasis on providing constructive challenge to complex proposals

Building and maintaining strong professional relationships with key stakeholders

For this important post, we are looking to appoint someone with proven experience of working in the legal sector (for example working with the Judiciary or legal professionals) as well as a track record of working with committees and boards (or equivalent). Candidates will also require the ability to research and make judgments from complex data, and to contribute to workable recommendations on complex and sensitive issues. A proficiency in building and maintaining effective working relationships with diverse stakeholders, providing constructive challenge as necessary, will also be vital.  Some previous experience of serving on a remuneration committee, or a working knowledge of pay and reward systems, would be helpful but not essential.

For further information on the role, please contact Andrew Timlin or Owen Quant on 02072598743

We encourage applications from talented individuals from all backgrounds and across the whole of the United Kingdom. Boards of public bodies are most effective when they reflect the diversity of views of the society they serve and this is an important part of the Government’s levelling up agenda.


The Office of the Parliamentary Counsel is based in Whitehall and consists of about 55 staff (40 of whom are legislative drafters).  A person appointed would work as part of a team of drafters collaborating with departmental lawyers and other officials in the preparation and handling of Government Bills.
