The data used at launch of this survey is taken from a random sample of candidates registered with Forward Role in 2016. The survey is dynamic and self updating so the data set will be continually refreshed as new data is added by respondents.
Our aim is to provide insight that helps candidates and clients gauge a 'typical' level for their role and chart a remuneration pathway as they become more experienced.
To be as accurate as possible in this endeavour we have not simply created an average by job titles. We've created an average by giving a mean figure for each job title and the number of years experience that someone has.
By way of an example, if 3 people have worked as a marketing executive for 3 years and their salaries are £24k, £25k and £26k the salary results will show a lowest salary figure for Marketing Executives of £24k, an average salary figure of £25k and a highest salary figure of £26k.
In addition, the salary will also show you what a Marketing Executive with 4, 6 and 8 years experience will earn on average so you can see what someone in your job will typically earn in 1, 3 or 5 years time.
Sometimes this won't always be the same job title. For example we've calculated that on average Marketing Managers are promoted to Marketing Mangers by year 7 (check figure). So the year 8 figure will be a Marketing Manager with 8 years Marketing experience in total.
The variables of job title, and years of experience is the only data currently informing results. As we have a more comprehensive data set, we will add in location variables too.
Optional data that we are collecting such as package details (etc add more) gender will be used solely for the purpose of creating an annual salary survey that we will share with candidates and clients.
If you have any queries about your results, please contact us and we will try and provide you with any context you may require.
We hope you found the survey useful.
