Our CEO and Staff Pay

The equivalent of our Chief Executive is our Territorial Leader, Commissioner Anthony Cotterill, who is given remuneration of £15,500.

Unlike most charities our Territorial Commander and many other people in senior roles are ministers of religion and do not receive a salary. When men and women make a commitment to Salvation Army officership they make a covenant with God. They receive financial remuneration (on average between £9,500 and £15,500) to cover their cost of living and a home is provided by way of officer’s quarters.

We take our legal obligations very seriously and publish a full salary breakdown of higher earning staff in our Trustee's report which is available to the public. We are a church and charity, made up of officers (ministers of religion), employees, volunteers and members.

The Salvation Army also employs a very limited number of specialist staff who earn more than £60,000 however no one at The Salvation Army receives a wage of more than £100,000.

The Salvation Army Trading Company, employs staff in specialist areas necessary to compete in this particular commercial market, but provides substantial funds of around £10 million a year for The Salvation Army which are directly used for our work with vulnerable and marginalised people in communities. The remuneration of staff working for the commercial subsidiary is in line with rest of the charity trading and recycling sector, reflecting their expertise.

We consider all recommendations but we believe that guidance to publish the names of higher earners conflicts with our duty of care to our employees. We are interested in NCVO's views on increasing transparency about senior pay and are reviewing this issue at a senior level and deciding how to respond.

Gender Pay Gap

The Salvation Army is committed to equal opportunities and equal treatment for all employees. In the economy today, there exists a gender pay gap; this is the measure of the overall difference between earnings of men and women within an organisation as a whole. There are many factors that contribute towards a gender pay gap; The Salvation Army’s gender pay gap compares favourably with that of the whole economy, however this is not a topic we are complacent about. You can read our report on The Salvation Army’s gender gap and learn what we’re doing to reduce it here
