Under Section 159 of the Local Government Act 2001, each Chief Executive is responsible for the staffing and organisational arrangements necessary for carrying out the functions of the local authority for which he or she is responsible. My Department oversees workforce planning for the local government sector, including the monitoring of local government sector employment levels. To this end, my Department gathers aggregate quarterly data on staff numbers in each local authority on a whole time equivalent basis.

However, granular data, in terms of the number of Director of Services in each local authority, is not collected and consequently is not available in my Department. The relevant information should be available from each local authority.

The salary scale for the Director of Service grade in the local government sector is detailed in the table below.
