Good Afternoon,

I wish to know 'How many people are employed by Cardiff County Council on annual starting salaries of £30,000 or more in each category (Up to whatever the top figure is) together with job titles and actual salary range'? also, 'WHAT PERCENTAGE IN ADDED BENEFITS (PENSION SCHEME, EXPENSES, BONUS, HOLIDAYS, SICK PAY, ETC. ) AND COST CAN BE ADDED TO THE PARTICULAR SALARY RANGE GIVEN, AS A TRUE COST TO THE COUNCIL IN RESPECT OF EMPLOYING THAT PERSON'?
I appreciate of course that it would be extremely difficult to give exact figures, even in percentage wise, in respect of extra costs over and above salary, and an honest rough percentage would do.
I am assuming and expect of course, that the Council have costed what cash it will, and is taking to employ an individual over and above any particular salary shown.........

Example...... 1.... Corporate Manager £51,238.00 to £55,337 say 25% (example)
1 Curriculum Worker-Splash Project £32,498......£35,
1 Customer Services Manager £36,657......£39,
13 Deputy Headteacher (Primary) £35,794. ....£43,
27 Deputy Headteacher (Primary) £35,794......£46,

Right to the top of the Salary Range and Job Title(s)

To guide you I made a similar request in 2008 to Powys County Council, and they answered as above. The figures above are just a little of it, and of course the full result can be found at the Powys County Council Website under F-2008-00287.
I am however requesting extra information from you, as per capital lettered above.

Please note that anything in capital letters up above is only meant to highlight something, and not to 'Shout' so to speak.

Well then, looking at the result just goes to show exactly why our Council Taxes are so big.

THIS is an example of exactly why the Government need to tackle the Public Sectors Pay and Pensions.
