The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY SI­MON ROCKER

THE JEWISH Lead­er­ship Coun­cil em­ployed twice as many staff as the Board of Deputies in 2016, ac­cord­ing to the coun­cil’s newly re­leased ac­counts.

While the JLC’s over­all spend­ing dropped by 2.7 per cent from £2,894,118 in 2015 to £2,815,710 last year, its staff costs rose by over 25 per cent from £1,008,898 to £1,265,575 in 2016.

The JLC set up a new ex­ter­nal af­fairs team, in­clud­ing a num­ber of re­gional of­fi­cers, over the past year.

Its staff in­creased from 21 to 28 last year — twice as many the Board of Deputies’ 14 in 2015.

Three JLC staff each earned over £110,000 last year, with the high­est in the £170,000-£179,999 bracket.

Do­na­tions have in­creased “sig­nif­i­cantly”, with more than £1.7 mil­lion con­trib­uted by 20 in­di­vid­u­als or or­gan­i­sa­tions.
