Sussex’s Local Authorities Spend £50 Million on Managers

Published by on Friday, 13 February 2009One Comment

Authorities across Sussex have come under fire for spending large amounts on management. A total of 170 managers, each earning more than £50,000, were employed by Brighton and Hove City Council in 2006/7, costing the taxpayer £10.74 million.  Last year this figure increased to 202, costing the taxpayer £12.35 million. A spokesperson for Brighton and Hove City Council said, “To deliver these we need to attract and retain high quality staff. We are competing against other authorities and the private sector to attract top talent, and to do so we need to offer a suitable wage.” This might be an admirable ideal but in my experience many of the managers at the council fail to even string a coherent sentence together in correspondence.
