Setting pay scales for staff in a church or mission agency is not straightforward. These notes offer ten sets of questions to help Trustees and others devise an appropriate scheme.

  1. Salary or stipend?
  2. Do you expect differentials?
  3. What are others paying?
  4. What does it look like to your congregation?
  5. How do you view incentives?
  6. Do you pay the Living Wage?
  7. How do you treat part-time and overtime?
  8. Is it right to take 'need' into account?
  9. What of those who do not require a full salary?
  10. Who knows what about whom?
