Executive pay at Parkinson's UK

Information about senior staff salaries at Parkinson's UK, including the chief executive and Executive Leadership team's pay and how salaries are governed.

At Parkinson's UK, we're committed to employing staff with the expertise, skills and knowledge needed to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

We pay a fair and appropriate salary to attract and keep the very best people with the right leadership experience.

In our commitment to openness, we are happy to disclose information about senior staff salaries.

This is in line with recommendations and guidelines from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

Our work is dependent on voluntary donations. In our financial responsibilities and transactions, we act openly and transparently in a way that respects the money, time and energy given by donors and volunteers.

How senior salaries are governed 

The salaries of the chief executive and directors are agreed by the Board of Trustees. The trustees also have oversight of the charity's pay processes. This is reviewed on an annual basis.

Salaries need to be competitive within the charity sector but we do not compete on pay with the public or private sectors.

We have always set out the pay bands for staff earning more than £60,000 per annum in our annual report and accounts
