Salary Survey 2004 published

One in three communications directors in the private sector are earning more than £100,000 a year, according to PRWeek’s Salary Survey 2004.

A quarter of consultancy bosses take home more than £60,000 – the top salary bracket for agencies – yet just eight per cent of their counterparts in the public sector fall into their top bracket of more than £80,000.

A change of methodology has been employed for this year’s survey, to present a more accurate guide to where pay levels lie across the industry.

Salary brackets are given for each job title across in-house private sector, in-house public sector and consultancies.

The findings show that additional benefits to salaries are featuring more prominently within remuneration packages, with a trend towards more ‘lifestyle’ benefits, such as flexi-hours, maternity and paternity leave arrangements over and above statutory requirements.

Almost 40 per cent said the number of hours they work each week has increased compared to 12 months ago.
