Another difference? Scottish charity bosses paid 9% less

Another wee drip on the stone of perceptions of the ways in which Scotland might be just a bit more collectivist (better) than rUK.

From Third Force News on 27th May:

‘Recruiters say Scottish charity bosses earn around 9% less than their UK counterparts. Recruitment firm BTA found that the average charity chief executive in Scotland earned £47,500, compared with £52,000 across the UK. The firm analysed job adverts over two years to compile its Scottish Charity Workforce Salary Survey ahead of the full report being published next month.

80 000 lowest paid workers in NHS England still on poverty wages as NHS Scotland follows Scottish Government policy to pay a living wage to all public-sector employees

Scottish care workers to receive Living Wage for ‘sleepover’ hours while English care workers receive only the National Minimum Wage.

At 78% level of satisfaction with NHS Scotland is impressive 36% higher than for the NHS across UK

UK Government urged to follow Scotland’s praised lead on employee ownership – another 8% story?

8% of the population but 11.8% of the charitable donations – ‘punching above our weight?’
