The School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB) is an independent body which makes recommendations to the Government on the pay and conditions of school teachers in England and Wales.

The STRB assesses evidence from Government and organisations representing schools and the teacher workforce, and visits schools and local authorities to develop its understanding of issues facing teachers. In recent years, the STRB has been asked to report on a variety of matters, including establishing a stronger link between teachers’ pay and performance, and providing greater flexibilities for governing bodies to produce individual pay policies for their schools.

The STRB is now seeking to fill 2 vacancies and is looking to recruit members with:

  • The ability to operate at a strategic level within a complex organisation in the private, public or voluntary sector;


  • An understanding of pay, remuneration, performance management and reward issues and an appreciation of the policy, financial and operational constraints that impact on remuneration decisions.


  • The ability to analyse and interpret a large amount of complex and sensitive information, make judgements and distinguish the major policy issues and contribute to workable recommendations.


  • The ability to credibly and effectively engage with a range of stakeholders including ministers, senior Government officials and senior employer and trade union representatives, gaining their respect and keeping their confidence.


  • A sound understanding of and commitment to equal opportunities, public service values and principles of public life and the ability to act impartially and uphold the independence of the STRB.


This position will provide an influential and intellectually stimulating challenge for the right individual, who will contribute to the recruitment, retention and motivation of an effective teacher workforce. As a member of the STRB you will bring your own expertise, alongside a high degree of analytical ability and strong communication skills.

This is a ministerial appointment and will initially be for up to three years. The time commitment for this position is approximately 25 days per year, for which an attendance allowance of £300 per day is payable, along with reimbursement for reasonable travel and subsistence costs. 

The closing date for applications is 26 March 2018. Details of how to apply are contained in the information pack for applicants found at the Centre for Public Appointments website.

Appointment will be made on merit following an open, fair and transparent competition.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit.
