Company Secretary Remuneration and Wellbeing Survey 2015.



With the economy strengthening and the job market reflecting this, our Remuneration and Wellbeing Survey comes after an interesting year in the Company Secretarial market. With 25% of secretariat teams growing in size during the last 12 months, there are now an increased number of opportunities as well as increased confidence and number of Company Secretaries changing jobs.


This positivity in the market has been reflected in salary levels with the increase in new jobs being mirrored by increases in salary, with the majority of those surveyed having received a salary increase in the past 12 months. It seems that after sitting tight and remaining static during the recession, Company Secretaries and their salaries are starting to move upwards. Savvy department heads are ensuring their valued members of the team are being paid the market rate.


With salaries being organised by both job title and industry sector, the survey provides an accurate view of the different subsections of the industry, allowing for an easy comparison of your salary with that of direct peers.


However, it’s not all about the money, with our unique survey also taking into account wellbeing factors. Looking at everything from stress and happiness to career progression and work-life balance, the survey provides a comprehensive look at the life of the Company Secretary, as well as their remuneration.


With c700 Company Secretaries taking part, our survey provides the most comprehensive view of this niche market based on actual results and not just historic data or assumptions. Giving a rare opportunity to compare your salary with your peers, see how the wellbeing of others is affected by their role and to benchmark salaries while recruiting, we hope this survey provides useful as well as interesting.
