RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST 

I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested further to your freedom of information request. 

Please find below a summary of our findings. 

Request 

Can we request the job description and pay grade (including the actual salary within the grade) for the highest ranking media and communications specialist within your Service? 

Reply 

The highest-ranking media and communications specialist would be Manager 1 A. 

Role Profile – Manager 1 A 

Pay Grading Salary Range – £59,048 – £61,702 

Request 

Can we also request a structure chart for your Corporate Communications Department/Team (or the most relevant department) including pay grades (and the salaries of those grades)? 

Reply 

We do not have an up-to-date current Corp Comms structure as we are restructuring in the area, the job description and structure chart is exempt under Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 

We use Microsoft 365 to provide dynamic organisation charts for individuals these are exempt under Section 40(2) under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Disclosure of the information may identify living persons, therefore it be unfair to disclose it and contravene principles of the Data Protection Act 2018 as they contain personal information.
