CHC Salary Benchmarking Survey
In September 2018, 36 (97%) Welsh Housing Associations (HAs) participated in the CHC salary benchmarking survey which is available here
While senior management pay has always been publically available, the intention of this report is to present senior management pay information in one place, and follows recommendations from the Public Accounts Committee to generate greater transparency and openness in the sector.
The housing sector in Wales provides great value for money; for every £1 of public funding received, Housing Associations generate £5.69 for the Welsh economy. In 2018/2019, HAs invested over £1bn in communities across Wales, with 89p in every £1 remaining in Wales.
Findings from the report shows that:
- 11% of the Welsh housing sector is led by a Chief Executive from a BAME background, which compares to 2% in the wider UK housing sector.
- Gender pay data relating to 5th April 2017 shows that parity in the sector is encouraging, with an even number of CEOs from each gender in the cohort. This compares to the national average, which shows typically 73% of males make up CEO jobs.
