charity sector pay

How charitable is the charity sector? It depends who you ask. If you are the executive of one of Britain's leading foreign aid charities you are likely to give a positive answer, but then you would be a beneficiary of this generosity of spirit. If, however, you are one of thousands of unpaid interns currently working for free for charities across the UK, you might be inclined to disagree.
People assume that CEOs in the charitable sector work for minimal pay. However, they fail to take into consideration the fact that these leaders are running multi-million pound organisations and that large charities require highly qualified individuals with management expertise.
