ACEVO’s annual Pay and Equalities Survey is the most comprehensive breakdown of the sector’s CEO remuneration packages available. The report examines chief executive salaries, benefits and job satisfaction in detail. It also explores the level of equality and diversity in our sector’s leadership, and satisfaction levels in the make-up and performance of boards.
This year’s survey gathered 826 responses, marginally fewer than in 2022 but it continues to be a reliable snapshot of CEO pay and processes, working conditions, representation across UK charities and leadership, plus a helpful benchmark of CEO salaries.
This report is entirely dependent on the contributions of members of ACEVO, ACOSVO and CO3, and bank customers of the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), who spared time and thought to complete the survey. We are extremely grateful to everyone who took part, and to Action Planning for supporting this report.
The survey was designed by ACEVO and CAF, then set up and run as an online survey by CAF.
