The Works Search and Selection annual Salary Survey - page 3

placed more people in-house than ever before, and Internal
Communications is an area we see really taking off over the next
year due to its increasing importance. Our agency clients are
a mix of international major players and exciting fast-growing
specialist boutiques. They have certainly been hiring with
momentum and the demand for exceptional talent remains high.
As a business, we are doing more search than ever, proactively
headhunting for the best people in the market. Many of our
clients are working with us exclusively as they are realising that
going a ‘mile deep’ rather than a ‘mile wide’ is more likely to
deliver great people.
Findings from PR employees
• Salaries have increased in the Communications industry
and there is a continued upward trend in bonuses –
a reflection of the growing economy and a renewed
confidence in the market.
• 68% of the participating PR employees received a salary
increase between January 2013 and March 2014. That’s a
27-point uplift on the same period from the previous year
when 41% received an increase. An improved economy
has put more companies in a position to raise the salaries
they offer to their employees.
