SINGAPORE LEADS THE WAY FOR GLOBAL MOBILITY DIRECTOR PAY ACCORDING TO JAM RECRUITMENT SURVEY

UK GM professionals lagging in pay terms but benefiting from other perks

Oil and Gas the most lucrative sector for international talent managers

Switzerland leads the way for mid-level employee’s pay

A new survey of over 1,000 professionals in the international Global Mobility sector has identified Global Mobility directors in Singapore as the highest earners, while non-managerial advisors in Switzerland are the best paid.

The survey showed the average salary for a Singapore based GM director is &pound144,900, and &pound138,400 in China compared with just &pound97,692 in the UK.

For non-managers, Switzerland and the USA were the best paying nations, with advisors earning &pound64,980 and &pound49,710 respectively, compared with &pound34,379 in the UK.

The figures also revealed the gap between in-house roles and those with service providers in the UK market, with internal directors earning over 30 per cent more than their agency counterparts.

Matthew Reaney, director at JAM, said: “This the most comprehensive Global Mobility survey in the market and it reveals that while the UK may be lagging a little behind other territories in terms of pay, GM workers here do enjoy a high level of benefits - with pensions and private medical care particularly common. This may reflect that fact that in the climate of economic austerity, UK employers are increasingly switched-on to other methods of attracting and keeping the best talent.

“It won’t come as a great surprise to anyone that Switzerland tops the list as the highest paying country for non-directors but that also reflects the high cost of living there compared with other regions.

“With this in mind, it looks like the most lucrative career path for a GM professional willing to travel would be to start in the USA before progressing to a mid-management position in Switzerland and a directorship in Singapore.”
