Chief executive pay and benefits

New remuneration ranges were established in June 2015 for chief executive officers appointed from that date. These rates were revised on 1 September 2016, 1 September 2017 and 1 September 2021, in line with increases under the Enterprise Bargaining Agreement for Core Queensland Government employees.

For some chief executive officers of statutory entities and senior public sector executives paid at chief executive equivalent remuneration, the chief executive officer remuneration values listed below continue to apply. These rates were also revised on 1 September 2016, 1 September 2017 and 1 September 2021, in line with increases under the Enterprise Bargaining Agreement for Core Queensland Government employees.

CEOs appointed after June 2015

Total Remuneration Package (TRP) comprises:

  • superannuable salary at 88.69176% of TRP
  • the standard Queensland Government employer contributions to superannuation at 12.75% of superannuable salary.

Executive Vehicle Allowance and annual leave loading have now been incorporated into TRP and are no longer separately identified.

This remuneration framework applies to the assessed work value for the position of chief executive of Government departments and statutory entities. For further information, contact the Public Service Commission. Rates are current from 1 September 2021.

This framework informs remuneration negotiations with the recommended chief executive (the person).
