“If you’ve worked all your life on £20,000 to £30,000, then someone getting £50,000 to £60,000 is getting a huge salary. Over £100,000 and that’s just an unreal world.” Mark Goldring

Oxfam Chief Executive Goldring is paid £121,294 a year. Recently, Goldring’s employers Oxfam released a report stating:

“The World’s richest 1% took home 82% of wealth last year.”

Their Chief Executive’s salary is nearly 5 times the UK average. We would suggest to Oxfam that Charity starts at home. But Mr Goldring disagrees, stating:

“I wouldn’t allow a situation where I thought I was being paid an unreasonable amount.”

Oxfam, he boasts, is a £400 million operation, and paying people peanuts, that is to say £40,000 or less, would result in lower calibre candidates.

According to the man himself, Colin Goldring deserves the money he receives, stating:

“you are not going to get a finance director capable of managing a £400m operation and pay them £25,000. It won’t happen, and it would be irresponsible.”

So there you have it. Charidee.
