Huge salaries for charity bosses
Sir, – Charity they say begins at home! Well, I think charity begins at the top and it is high time attention be paid to inspecting the outrageously high salaries that those in management positions enjoy.
It does not follow that you acquire the best people for the job because you offer such rich rewards.
In fact high wages may well be attracting the opposite kind of person.
A person genuinely interested in working within a charity would not seek such riches and would be much more dedicated.
Oxfam does not just provide lucrative salaries to their top people but also, I understand, gives them prestigious houses to live in. When I discovered the amount a chief executive of a charity I was contributing to received I immediately cancelled my direct debit!
