Jayne Francis-Ward: Corporate Director for Resources

Jayne Francis Ward, Nottinghamshire County Council Corporate Director for Resources

Jayne has a broad remit for a range of strategic County Council functions covering performance and improvement, policy, finance, ICT, HR and customer services, communications and marketing as well as corporate governance. She is responsible for around 280 employees.

Jayne was born in Doncaster and educated in Nottingham. Jayne is a qualified solicitor and has worked at the Council since 1989 joining as an Assistant Solicitor from Derbyshire County Council. Prior to this she worked in the private sector. Jayne has held a number of roles at the Council, including the position of Assistant Chief Executive, and was appointed to her current post in March 2012.

In 2006, Jayne established EMLawShare - a consortium of 56 public sector legal departments across England. The consortium works in partnership with six private sector legal firms to provide cost-effective legal services and training. The partnership has helped to deliver savings of over £7 million during its lifetime.

Jayne has twice been nominated for the East Midlands Business woman of the year. She is a former Chair of the Nottingham Employment Tribunal User Group and former member of the Law Society Committee for practice management standards. She has published a number of articles and has been a guest speaker at numerous conferences.

Salary and pension

The overall remuneration package includes a basic salary as well as the amount the Council has to contribute to the pension of Local Government Pension Scheme members. Those Chief Officers who are members of the LGPS and earn between £100,000 and £150,000 pa contribute 11.5% of their salary to their membership of the scheme. The Employers contribution to the pension of all employees at all levels is currently 19.2%. All Chief Officers are paid on a fixed salary.

Senior managers are expected to be on call at all times including weekends. Nottinghamshire County Council does not at this time provide any benefits that an equivalent senior manager in the private sector might receive in addition to the basic salary - for example performance-related bonuses, private health care or company cars.

Jayne also undertakes work for other statutory bodies for which she receives no additional remuneration.
