Epaycheck: National Pay Benchmarking Service

 Epaycheck is the national online pay benchmarking service developed for local government by local government.  It enables participating councils to share and compare pay and reward data for all Chief Officer roles and a range of other job families of sector-wide interest.  

Focused reports are produced periodically using data from Epaycheck.  These reports are available at no additional cost to authorities subscribing to the service, the annual subscription fee for which is currently a modest £200. 

Epaycheck Data Report
In September 2018 a report has been published entitled ‘Planning Roles: Pay, recruitment and retention’, responding to ongoing concerns about difficulty in recruiting and retaining planners. The report identifies variation in pay across the regions, explores recruitment and retention ratings and provides trend data on pay increases over recent years. 

We hope that this report demonstrates the value, quantity and depth of the data available on Epaycheck.  Users in subscribing organisations can also log in to Epaycheck to access all the information in ‘real time’, including new pre-set public reports providing full data on each job family at the touch of a button. 

For further information on the Epaycheck system please click here.  For any queries about the report or any aspect of Epaycheck, please contact your Regional Administrator, michele.evans@swcouncils.gov.uk.
