Overpaid Charity CEOs - Campaign to Address Excessive Charity Pay - sign our Houses of Parliament petition



Jonathan Fagan, Managing Director of Ten-Percent Legal Recruitment and Trustee of the Ten-Percent Foundation, has launched a petition on the Houses of Parliament website.

"If we get 10,000 signatures the government will respond and if we get 100,000 signatures then Parliament will debate the issue."

The petition is as follows:

Remove status from charities paying staff more than 3 times the average wage.

Charities in the UK should have their charitable status removed if they pay any of their staff more than three times the average wage. Why should a pensioner on less than £150 a week give £5 to a charity that pays a CEO £200k? In 2016-2017 three times the average wage is £82,500. Many [charity staff] get more.

By way of examples - Parkinson's UK has 10 staff earning between £60,000 and £130,000, The Royal British Legion has 26 staff earning between £60,000 and £160,000, Help for Heroes has 17 staff earning between £60,000 and £110,000 and Cancer Research UK has 219 staff earning between £60,000 and £250,000.

Education Law - a new growth area in the UK?


Education Law - a new growth area? 
 
A quick note simply to say that if you specialise in education law and would like details of new locum and permanent roles coming our way please let us know by emailing us - cv@ten-percent.co.uk. In the last 2 weeks we have seen a number of firms register education law vacancies with us. There seems to be a growth spurt particularly around Special Educational Needs matters. Vacancies have included requirements for advocates in particular - the firms seem to be looking for solicitors to represent clients at LA & school meetings and tribunal hearings and also providing advice on statutory assessments & reviews. Similarly we have had reports of a requirement for judicial review experience. Not sure why these vacancies are suddenly coming through. In fact I would say we have had more requests in the last 2-3 weeks than in the previous 10 years! Does anyone know something we don't?
