Are you getting paid what you are worth? Or are you an employer looking to benchmark your teams’ salaries against the rest of the region?

Key highlights:

  1. Salaries appear to be moving in an upward trend, which mirrors the Eastern Region economy.
  2. Increased salaries could be attributed to the introduction of the new national Living Wage, however candidates are also negotiating better terms, with many having several opportunities available to them.
  3. Over the last two years, benefits have played a greater role within the decision-making process when candidates are looking to move. Many additional benefits that were originally seen as “added value” are now seen as common place. These include additional study allowance, car parking, healthcare and gym membership.
  4. ITspecialism features for the first time in the Pure Annual Salary Survey.
    • Across the region, the demand for skilled IT professionals is high and salaries have increased significantly in response, across all levels and roles.
