statement on CEO salary...

The Inspire Board of Trustees is responsible for defining the salary of Inspire's Chief Executive.

Inspire's Chief Executive salary is £104,700. This reflects the enormous responsibility the position carries and is underpinned by rigorous and professional scrutiny of performance. Inspire commissioned an independent sectoral benchmarking report from PWC, an NI CEO salary survey report and other reports from employers’ advisory groups in informing this decision. 

The Inspire Group has a robust and transparent policy that not only ensures the selection and recruitment of high caliber leaders, but also ensures pay scales are proportionate to the complexity of the role and the responsibilities involved. 

The Inspire Group is a large, complex organisation with a turnover in 2017-2018 predicted to be in the region of £25 million and a team of over 1400 staff, counsellors and volunteers. Inspire is delivering services across the whole Island of Ireland across all departments including Intellectual Disability, Professional Services, Mental and Addictions. 

As a charitable organisation we recognise our important responsibilities towards our beneficiaries, funders, donors, supporters, staff and the public. With such responsibility we must follow good governance, ethical best practices, be financially well managed and focused on delivering our mission for each individual for whom we provide care and support. As such we need to attract the most talented individuals who are capable of running modern and complex organisations. 

We are dedicated to building lasting relationships built on trust with each of our partners and in doing so we embrace transparency and accountability in all aspects of our work.

We are also dedicated to growing our organisation, setting new standards in service delivery and building a shared society where wellbeing really matters.
