The London Fire Brigade (LFB) publishes details of certain senior staff as required by the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (Statutory Instrument 2015/234) as part of its annual accounts:
- the number of employees whose remuneration in that year was at least £50,000 in brackets of £5,000
- details of remuneration and job title of certain senior employees whose salary is at least £50,000, and
- employees whose salaries are £150,000 or more must also be identified by name.
This information is included in the published accounts which are available here for 2018/19 on the LFB website.
The 'senior staff' prescribed by the regulations for the Brigade comprise four officers namely: the Director of Corporate Services, the Director (Deputy Commissioner) of Safety and Assurance, and the Director (Deputy Commissioner) of Operations and General Counsel.
Under the Local Government Transparency Code 2015, the Brigade must also publish a list of responsibilities (for example, the services and functions they are responsible for, budget held and number of staff) and details of bonuses and ‘benefits-in-kind’, for all senior employees whose salary exceeds £50,000. And, in the interests of transparency, the Brigade publishes details of all staff who are designated as heads of service (assistant directors and assistant commissioners) in addition to the four officers required by the Accounts and Audit Regulations, and this information is available on this page.
Details of gifts, hospitality and expenses for senior LFB staff are published quarterly here.
Note: For Commissioner/Director roles, the budget and staffing figures have been aggregated from the budgets/staff held by Heads of Service under each Director, so there is some double counting.
LFB staff are employed by the London Fire Commissioner who is the fire and rescue authority for London; the London Fire Commissioner is not an employee of the LFB and is employed by the Greater London Authority. Details for LFC are included on this page for completeness.
