undefined

Colin Pettigrew joined Nottinghamshire County Council in October 2015, as Corporate Director for Children and Families, leading one of the largest departments delivering children, families and cultural services in the Country, serving over 110,000 children in Nottinghamshire.

Colin had previously been in post as Director of Children's Services at Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council in Merseyside. As a qualified and registered social worker, Colin has worked in children’s services for a number of local authorities and charities over the last 30 years.

Colin also spent nearly two years working for the Department for Children, Schools and Families, leading on improvements under the Every Child Matters agenda and new policies on child poverty and children with disabilities.

Whilst originating from Scotland, Colin has lived in Lincolnshire for all of his adult life. Outside of work his interests include walking, running and supporting Grimsby Town Football Club.

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 £107,701 and £161,500 pa contribute 11.4% of their salary to their membership of the scheme. The Employers contribution to the pension of employees, at all levels, is 22.2% since 1 April 2017. 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.
