As Reward Manager, you will lead on implementing CMA’s pay and reward strategy and will oversee the HR system development plan. Supporting you in delivering a quality HR Operations service will be a Senior HR Adviser (HR Systems) and a HR Adviser (Pay and Reward), for who you will be responsible for managing and motivating. The specific responsibilities of the role include:
- Pay and Reward: Developing the implementation of the CMA’s future pay strategy and leading on the CMA’s participation in the HM Treasury’s Pay Bill Control Pilot. You will also lead on the development of pay business cases, the delivery of the SCS and non-SCS annual pay settlements and lead on pay negotiations and consultation exercises with staff representatives. You will also oversee the delivery of the annual Gender Pay Gap and Ethnicity Pay Gap analysis and annual reporting and all internal and external reward reporting.
