Salaries on the Up
Salaries and bonuses for Northern Ireland professionals showed improvement in 2012 as employers seek to retain top talent, a recent survey revealed.
According to the annual Salary Survey from Brightwater Recruitment Specialists, IT, Legal, HR and Sales & Marketing ranked as the best performing sectors in terms of payment increases and benefits particularly in niche areas.
David Bloch, CEO of the Brightwater Group said:
"The results show that employers are rewarding key people who add real value to their business with both increases in their basic pay as well as improving their benefits packages as a whole. The survey also shows that there is movement happening in the market again with not only employers planning to take on more staff but also with job seekers having the confidence to move jobs, creating a welcome and refreshing churn in the jobs market."
Designed to help employers accurately forecast their staffing budgets for the coming year, Brightwater's Salary Survey provides detailed market insights and identifies pay trends across a wide range of professions including Banking, Engineering, Sales & Marketing, Business Support, Legal and Accountancy
