Organisation Structure


Process for setting remuneration

The Girls’ Brigade Singapore is governed by its Board. Members of the Board are volunteers and do not receive any remuneration for their contribution, except for reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses.

No staff member, including the Executive Director, sets or decides on matters of salary. Staff salaries are set to the standards within our means. Our staff management committee approves the salaries of all staff, including key personnel.
