Senior staff

   Find out more about the BBC’s senior leaders including their roles and pay

   The BBC publishes details of salaries, expenses, gifts, hospitality and declaration of personal interests for all senior leaders who earn £150,000 or more per year, as well as for all members of the BBC Board. The list below shows those people whose details are disclosed.

   This list does not include commercially-funded roles or employees temporarily acting up into a senior manager role.

   We publish the annual remuneration of each Executive Committee member, and the fees paid to Board members. For other senior leaders, we disclose either the remuneration received during the previous financial year, if it was disclosed in the Annual Report, or their annual remuneration if they were not eligible for inclusion in the latest Annual Report. In line with the Annual Report, remuneration is disclosed in bands of £5,000, apart from for Executive Committee and Board members whose exact details are disclosed. Pay details are updated annually for each individual. Expenses are published quarterly.

   Staff who have recently left the organisation are listed at the bottom of the page.
