The Public Sector Rich List 2015

November 23, 2015 5:52 PM

The TaxPayers' Alliance's Public Sector Rich List is the largest project of its type ever undertaken.

Through the Freedom of Information Act we have obtained details of tens of thousands of public sector workers earning more than £100,000 a year. We reveal the job titles and full remuneration of thousands of public sector workers taking home more than the prime minister.

For the first time, you have a full picture of just how much of your money is being spent on a truly massive public sector.

  • Town Hall Rich List - the highest earners in the UK's councils
  • NHS - includes NHS trusts, quangos, clinical commissioning groups, ambulance trusts, GPs and dentists
  • Education - includes schools, universities, and multi academy trusts
  • Police - includes police forcers and the offices of police and crime commissioners
