Our pay structure

We are proud to have an open and transparent pay structure. It is comparatively flat, governed by a principle that the highest-paid member of staff will be paid no more than double the lowest-paid member of staff.

This system exists not only with a view to upholding equality within Reprieve but also as part of our commitment to holding the money we raise in trust for those we represent. In 2019, for £1 we raised in income, 89.4p was spent on our charitable activities. Our services come at no cost to the individuals we assist, who are often denied the justice they deserve as a direct consequence of their limited financial means.

In January 2019 we introduced a new pay band, meaning all Officer level positions recruited since this date are paid at the new level of £36,400 a year. This means that there are a small number of Officers who joined the organisation prior to January 2019 who are paid at the ring-fenced level of £41,633. All Officers on the new salary who stay with the organisation for two years of continuous service have their salary increased to the higher Officer pay band. This is to reward longevity and experience within Reprieve.

We are proud of the diversity of our staff and we particularly welcome applications from underrepresented groups.

The 2020 pay bands for Reprieve staff are:

Role Salary
Executive Director £68,197
Directors £58,092
Deputy Directors and Heads £49,648
Project/Regional Lead £44,936
Officers (hired pre-2019) £41,633
Officers (hired post-2019) £36,400
