School Teachers’ Review Body Member - Chair

The School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB) is an independent body which makes recommendations to the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Education on the pay and conditions of school teachers in England.

The STRB assesses evidence from Government and organisations representing schools and the teaching profession, and visits schools and local authorities to develop its understanding of issues facing teachers. In addition to providing recommendations on annual pay awards for teachers and school leaders, the STRB has been asked to report on a variety of matters in recent years, including moving toward a pay structure with higher starting and early career salaries and relatively flatter pay progression and providing additional guidance to schools through advisory pay points.

The STRB is now seeking to fill a vacancy, and is looking to recruit a chair that demonstrates the following criteria:
  • Expertise of providing strong leadership at a senior level, including chairing groups with diverse skills and experience to deliver consensus.
  • A detailed knowledge and understanding of pay, remuneration, performance management, labour market and reward issues and a strong understanding of the policy, financial and operational constraints that impact on remuneration decisions, especially in the public sector.
  • Expertise in analysing and interpreting detailed information such as statistical and economic data and information on legal, policy and HR matters and to draw appropriate conclusions.
  • Able to communicate effectively and command the respect of others quickly, to challenge and engage courteously particularly those of opposing views, facilitating agreement across a wide range of perspectives and attitudes.


This position will provide an influential and intellectually stimulating challenge for the right individual, who will contribute to the recruitment, retention and motivation of an effective teacher workforce. As a member of the STRB you will bring your own expertise, alongside a high degree of analytical ability, strong communication skills and, ideally, an appreciation of public sector reward issues.

The time commitment for this position is approximately 30 days per year, for which an attendance allowance of £350 per day is payable, no additional fee is paid for any time spent in preparation or travelling. This is a ministerial appointment and will initially be for up to three years.

The closing date for applications is 15 January 2021, 12pm.
