Capita boss’s pay jumps in 2012

Paul Pindar, the chief executive of outsourcing giant Capita, took home a £760,000 bonus in 2012 having gone without one the previous year, the company’s annual report revealed yesterday. This meant that with his £380,000 salary and a pension contribution, Pindar was handed £1.2m last year, compared with £381,000 the year before. With other long-term incentive schemes accruing, he took home £1.94m in total, as well as cashing in £5.8m worth of company shares. Staff at Capita, which runs a host of government contracts such as collecting TV licence fees, had protested over the 53-year-old’s pay in 2010.
