This allows RO's wiggle room to employ below recommended minima but they will be frowned upon

All sounds far too reasonable, bound to be a catch somewhere....

It's worth reflecting that this change removes a requirement that has been in place for five years - if it had been going to work then it would have done so by now.

You missed out the second part of that para:
However, the Registered Organisations committee has been instructed to use non‐compliance with the recommended starting salaries as a trigger for a more detailed audit of the way an applicant or existing organisation ensures that it has appropriately competent staff at its disposal, with immediate effect. The committee has been instructed to look very closely indeed at applications from organisations that do not comply with the recommended minimum salaries: it will be up to applicants for Registration to make a persuasive case that they can recruit, retain, motivate and develop staff with the skills necessary to comply with IfA’s Code of conduct and standards.

and

Council additionally resolved that IfA’s Jobs Information Service will not accept paid
advertisements for archaeological posts that do not comply with the recommended minima.

It is good to be reminded that IfA council is made up of working people who care deeply about the profession and consider things carefully. It is easy to forget this when IfA is caricatured as an employers club interested only in profit and self-aggandisement.

Thankyou Martin, I can assure you there is no profit in being on Council. Or thanks. Although it is satisfying when you can help get a result for everyone as I feel we have done. The proof will be in the application, and that will rely on everyone.
