SRG 2015 Salary Survey published in partnership with New Scientist
This is the most comprehensive report to date collating responses from 5,500 scientists from SRG’s global database and New Scientist’s readership. It’s currently the most complete benchmarking tool for employers and jobseekers to measure themselves against the industry.
“This is reliable, unique, first-hand research that you won’t find anywhere else, and we’re extremely proud to offer it to you.” Kelly Morton Managing Director, SRG
The report highlights the increased pressure on employers to find and retain the most skilful employees. This is reflected in increased pay and bonuses for top talent as the fight for the best intensifies. Average salaries are up by approximately £1,500, and bonuses have increased by more than 25%.
As less people study engineering or scientific subjects, the skills shortage is increasing and demand for professionals with 5 or more years’ experience is exceptionally high. Despite the high demand, scientists are working harder than ever to progress their careers resulting in more than a third now feeling that they have a bad work/life balance.
