Vanilla’s 2019 Salary Survey for the East Midlands

What are the going rates of pay in the East Midlands and Nationally?

When you’re getting ready to advertise a job, it’s really useful to know how much the average pay is for an equivalent role nearby. This way, you know where you need to pitch your job in order to get the right level of applicants.

Using the extensive data in our Salary Survey, you’ll be able to benchmark across your business and set competitive salaries for your future recruitment.

Our data for this survey has been collated through Vanilla’s knowledge of the local employment market and working with HR company, Croner.

Although organisations are largely confident about their activity and growth plans, skills shortages across all sectors continue to gain momentum and add work place pressures. Effective work force planning and talent management will be even more critical over the coming year.

While employers are faced with one of the most competitive recruitment climates yet, with skills shortages causing issues like low morale, and causing absenteeism due to stress there are some clear actions employers should consider to make headway with the issues.

Workforce planning needs to be high on the agenda. Utilising contingent (temporary) workers can alleviate work place pressure and boost morale and should be factored into hiring plans now before the retention of permanent employees becomes an even more serious issue. Finally, focus on strengthening your company brand will become much more important in order to attract the available talent.

Addressing these areas now will allow organisations to be in the best possible position to stay ahead of the competition.

The data in this survey covers job roles within Office, Sales, Marketing, HR & Training, Accountancy & Finance and Director Level positions. And highlights the lower, upper and average salaries for each position both within the East Midlands and Nationally during the time period throughout 2018/19.
