Remuneration Survey and Reports
LGMS’ annual Remuneration Survey collects data provided by councils, on Total Remuneration Packages (TRP) for general managers, directors, managers and supervisors/specialists across NSW.
LGMS’ Remuneration Report provides comparative data on the TRP for a range of leadership positions from the general manager down to supervisor level. Our remuneration reports provide remuneration comparisons against councils in similar sized councils, the same regional councils, and all participating councils across NSW. The reports can be customised on request, to a demographic specified by Council.
The report is based on data provided by councils through our annual Remuneration Survey and other avenues. It has a high participation rate amongst NSW councils, making it a valuable tool to decision makers, providing current and comprehensive data for budget preparations and remuneration reviews.
We encourage all councils to participate in the annual NSW Local Government Remuneration Survey.
