Pay and Reward - Working for Essex
Seeing the impact your work
has here – honestly, it’s good
for the soul.

Welcome to Pay and Reward

“Throughout my career I have seen how the remuneration element and the benefit package, impacts every employee throughout the employee life cycle in an organisation. Essex has the most diverse employee population, an appetite to continually evolve and bring about change for the better. I joined Essex County Council because it’s looking to bring equality to it’s pay policy and expand its benefits offering.

I am an experienced Reward professional with over 10 years’ experience in HR, ranging from global mobility to Reward and Benefits. I have had the pleasure of managing numerous renumeration reviews, ranging from managing the planning, actively rolling out the remuneration reviews, undertaking benchmarking and salary surveys, to lessons learned and embedding improvement for following years. I have overhauled, refreshed and reengineered the benefits offering, enabling company benefits to be suitable and accessible to all staff, ensuring the end user experience is smooth.

Essex is entering a pivotal phase of embracing Hybrid working, so its exciting to see how Rewards & Benefits impacts the new ways of working.”

Rajeshree Shah, Employment Reward Lead


Here at Essex County Council Rajeshree is responsible for the pay, recognition and benefit policies and procedures, keeping pace with current reward trends and thinking, while ensuring that the day-to-day operational aspects are delivered to employees, managers and leadership teams. It’s safe to say that pay and reward at Essex County Council has no greater advocate.
