Committee of University Chairs consultation on senior staff pay

Responding to the launch of CUC's consultation on senior staff pay​, a Universities UK spokesperson said:

"It is right to expect that the process for determining senior university staff pay is ​rigorous and transparent. This new code provides important guidance for university remuneration committees to ensure senior pay decisions are fair, accountable and justified whilst recognising that competitive pay is necessary to attract first rate leaders."
