There’s an interesting survey underway at the moment, which may be worth a few minutes’ time for any UK-based readers – especially as there’s a luxury weekend for two in Paris on offer for one randomly-drawn person who completes the questionnaire!
As our good friend Martin Smith, a director at Bid Solutions (who have teamed up with UKAPMP to lead the project) explains:
At any one time we may be recruiting for multiple roles within a specific industry. Whilst job titles and role responsibilities can be very similar, salaries can vary wildly. For example, we’ve just been recruiting for two roles within the IT sector. Both have similar titles and role descriptions, yet one is paying £30k and the other £60k.
Underpinning the survey is some ground-breaking work that Martin, Dan and the team have been doing to assess competencies, which is absolutely fascinating stuff.
I’ve just completed the survey myself, which took about ten minutes, and found it rather interesting –click here if you want to participate.
