Our annual Salary Survey never fails to generate plenty of interesting findings – and this year was no different. While many of the results weren’t altogether unsurprising, there were a few that caught us off our guard. One in particular was the notable upward trend in salaries and bonuses for junior roles across sectors. We thought it was worth digging a little deeper to see what might have triggered this upturn in rewards for the PR professionals in the early stages of their career.

If you asked me to list 5 things that I love about my job, executive search would be up there – without a doubt. Just to clarify, the aim of an executive search assignment is to find the very best person in the market for a particular role with specific skills and attributes. The search looks at only the cream of the crop – the top 5% of professionals. To carry this out to maximum effect, an extraordinary amount of very discriminating and meticulous work is required. It’s painstaking at times, but it’s a process that runs deep, comes with a ‘no ifs ands or buts’ pre-requisite – and I love it!

First, lets consider why you might try to avoid using a PR recruitment agency....well, it’s cheaper to recruit for yourself, right?...Maybe. But a bad hire picked from an average pool of candidates often results in a very costly mistake. More than that, a bad hire is a drain on your time, energy and your resources, that can amount to 2.5 times their annual salary. Ouch!

Use an expert recruiter with specialist PR market knowledge and you nail it, with the right person, first time. Here’s why.
