RSPB gave biggest pay rises in sector, says latest survey

The RSPB handed out the most generous pay awards in the sector this year, according to a survey from research body Industrial Relations Services.

The bird protection organisation awarded staff a 3.4 per cent increase compared with a median of 2.5 per cent for those working in the charity and housing association sectors.

According to the study, the National Trust awarded a 3 per cent cost of living increase, together with additional performance related pay awards of 1.5 per cent of basic salaries.

The study looked at pay reviews in 77 organisations including big name organisations such as Leonard Cheshire, RNID, National Trust and Save the Children.

It established that pay rises for 2002 are slightly lower than last year largely due to an "historically benign inflationary climate".
