Salaries for admin roles are down, finds Office Angels

Average salaries for many office support roles increased, but salaries for administration positions were largely down during the second quarter of 2013 according to Office Angels’ mysalarychecker.com.

Many office support positions saw a modest salary increase, with marketing managers seeing a significant quarterly increase of 12%. Credit controllers (2%), finance assistants (3%) and finance managers (3%) also saw steady increases. Retail sales assistants saw significant increases of 13%, suggesting a buoyant high street as well as an overall improving job market.

By contrast, administration roles did not see the same consistent increases with pay for receptionist roles down by 8% and secretaries’ pay down by3% since Q1.

Office Angels Branch Managers from across the UK have expressed confidence in the job market. There has been a spike in temporary usage, in keeping with the time of year as many employers seek holiday cover, which has resulted in a rise in the number of temporary to permanent requests and steady temporary salary rates. Branch managers have also reported an overall increase in vacancies, indicating a shift from a client driven to a candidate led market.

Darren Roscoe, Operations Director at Office Angels said: “Despite a number of isolated dips, the sum of these trends suggests that confidence is returning amongst a healthy proportion of the UK’s employers. After a frugal few years, an encouraging number of organisations are starting to invest in new headcount, and therefore, injecting renewed vigour into the UK jobs market.

“Whilst this is good news all round, employers need to be mindful that with more opportunities at their disposal, workers will not only be looking for new challenges — they’ll also be expecting far more. A balance will therefore need to be met between attracting and engaging the strongest talent in the market, and retaining existing staff.”
