Background

Tim joined Nottinghamshire County Council in 2009 following four years with Wiltshire County Council as the Council's service director for ICT and procurement. Tim led on the creation of Wiltshire Council as a unitary authority.

Prior to his local government experience, Tim served for 27 years with the Royal Marines reaching the rank of Brigadier and fulfilling significant roles as the Corporate Director for the Defence Communications Service Agency and acting as Deputy Defence Attaché at the British Embassy in Washington. This was after military posts in all three Commando units and service in Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Iraq.

Tim completed a BA Geography degree at London University in 1975, attended and instructed at the Army Staff College and attended the year-long Royal College of Defence Studies in 1998.

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.

Tim has received no pay increase since 2009.
