In addition to the base remuneration point, each senior executive role has an individual discretionary remuneration range (see Appendix 1, Table 2). Effective 1 July 2017, the discretionary remuneration ranges for bands 1 to 3 are as follows:
- Band 1: up to $21,943
- Band 2: up to $32,914
- Band 3: up to $43,885
The maximum discretionary range for a senior executive role is obtained by adding the amount of the discretionary remuneration range for the relevant band to the base remuneration point for a senior executive role.
The maximum base remuneration point for a senior executive role is equal to the maximum remuneration for the band minus the maximum discretionary remuneration range for that band.
If the WVP for a role falls above or below the points range for the band, the following will apply:
- WVP is above the band range - the base remuneration point for the role is set at the point equal to the maximum remuneration for the band minus the maximum discretionary remuneration range for the band.
- WVP is below the band range - the base remuneration point is set at the minimum for the band. For example, a senior executive role classified under the work level standards as band 1 with a Mercer/CED job/role evaluation outcome of 660 would have the remuneration associated with a role evaluated at 670 of which is the bottom of the range for band 1.
