Company Secretary Remuneration and Wellbeing Survey 2014.



      Salary surveys generally provide a rare chance to have a furtive look at the remuneration of others in the market, compare them to your own and go away feeling briefly pleased/disappointed. You then return to your previous task and quickly forget what a Company Secretarial Assistant at a FTSE-Small Cap company earns on average, as, let’s be honest, it isn’t really relevant.

      However, this year at The Core Partnership we decided to take a closer look at various other factors which affect the life of a Company Secretary, instead of simply providing a generic breakdown of salary information. We explore factors such as job satisfaction, stress and job security, as well as a breakdown of remuneration by sector and hierarchy. This allows us to provide an in-depth view of the career of a Company Secretary. For example, did you know that more than 80% of Company Secretaries consider the content of their role to be more important than financial reward?
      We address everything from the effect of team size on stress and happiness to the importance of work/life balance to a Company Secretary. If you are interested in finding out more than the usual remuneration details of other Company Secretaries and wish to look at the wider factors which affect wellbeing in this career, then our unique survey is the perfect place to start.
      Comprising of a 17 page booklet, this in depth survey sheds light on previously unpublished elements of the career and influences of a Company Secretary, encompassing all levels in the industry from Company Secretarial Assistant to Group Company Secretary. Whether benchmarking salary levels while recruiting within your own team, or finding out the average increase in salary in the last year, our survey can be both a useful tool within your business and provide previously unseen insight into the life of a Company Secretary.
