This year we surveyed our membership to see what you were earning, what you thought about diversity at your organisation, the perks of your job, and what was important to you when looking for a new job. We noticed some differences in median base salaries compared to last year. One factor was a larger sample size that was biased towards people in the early stages of their career, skewing overall medians lower. We’re thinking about how we might do this survey differently next year, so we can present more useful data – please get in touch.
