The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) covers council employees and some councillors. The LGPS is a contributory scheme; employees contribute 5.5%-7.5% of their own salaries to the scheme. Employers' contributions to the LGPS vary depending upon how much is needed to ensure benefits under the Scheme are properly funded, and are set independently. The rules governing the pension scheme are contained in regulations made by Parliament. Further information about the scheme can be found on the LGPS website.
The average salary at Oxford City Council, excluding casual workers is £26,217.10 per year (November 2011).
The Oxford City Council pay multiple is 1:7 which is considered to be appropriate in the context of achieving a reasonable balance between increasing the standard of living for the lowest paid employees (and their having to meet the expense of living in Oxford), and ensuring we attract and retain the skills and experience required at the most senior level to meet the challenges the City faces.
