Pay Scales and salary consequences of changing between the Statistician and Operational Research professions

Jen Dalestone made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

(1) Could you please provide the minimum and maximum payscales for the following two of the four main analytical professions broken down by profession and grade for London only:
- Statisticians (Government Statistical Service)
- Operational Researchers (Government Operational Research Service).

(2) In addition to (1) above, could you give the 25th percentile, median, and 75th percentile of the salaries broken down by profession and grade for London only.

(3) If an employee changes profession from a median salaried HStO Statistician into an equivalently graded HSO Operational Researcher, how is their salary changed, if at all? Is this the same at SStO and SSO grades?

(4) If an employee changes profession from a median salaried Operational Researcher into an equivalently graded Statistician, how is their salary changed, if at all? Is this the same at SSO and SStO grades?

(5) If an employee changes from a HSO Operational Researcher to a HStO Statistician and then to a SSO Operational Researcher is it then possible for their salary to be re-calculated so that they are at the top of their payscale in London by the time they are an SSO?

Yours faithfully,

Jen Dalestone
