MAS director on £200k a year exits


One of the Money Advice Service’s highest paid directors who earned over £200,000 last year has quit the organisation.

Lesley Robinson joined the MAS in 2011 as UK debt advice and corporate services director. She became one of its highest paid members of staff, taking home more than £200,000 in 2014/15.

Robinson earned a total pay and benefits package of £187,000 in 2013/14. In comparison, MAS chief executive Caroline Rookes earned £180,000 in 2014/15 and £163,000 in 2013/14.

Robinson is leaving the organisation at the end of the week to join MDL Marinas, which operates boatyards across Hampshire.

MAS chief executive Caroline Rookes says: “Lesley has been a great asset to the MAS and has played an invaluable role in evolving free debt advice services so that they now reach more people than ever.

“She has continued to make a full and active contribution to the leadership of the MAS since announcing her departure in September and we wish her well for her future role.”
