Salary band

john luke made this Official Information request to New Zealand Tourism Board

The request was successful.

From: john luke

Dear New Zealand Tourism Board,

I am requesting under the official information act information about all the positions in the Tourism NZ where the position holder is paid more than $150,000 per annum.

My request covers both permanent employees and any contractors or consultants.

Please provide a list of all the positions that meet the criteria ($150,000 or more), listed by business group in the Tourism NZ, and for each please provide the full position title, and the associated remuneration and an indication of whether the position is filled by a permanent employee or a contractor/consultant or other. I am comfortable if you wish to provide the remuneration information in salary bands or ranges or similar, provided they are not too large. I note that SSC uses ranges of $10,000 when identifying chief executive remuneration which would be an acceptable range for my request.

For context can you please also provide me with the total number of staff in each business group.

If it would make complying with this request easier, I am happy to accept slightly older information, E.g. it does not need to be accurate as at the date of this request, provided it is dated within the last 12 months, and you identify the applicable date.

Yours faithfully,

john luke
