Salary comes second to work challenges in PR

PR practitioners are slightly better paid and less stressed than in previous years, but many want to leave their jobs in the next year, according to the 1998 PR Week/Media Appointments Salary Survey.

PR practitioners are slightly better paid and less stressed than in

previous years, but many want to leave their jobs in the next year,

according to the 1998 PR Week/Media Appointments Salary Survey.



Despite smaller percentage pay increases than last year, 68.6 per cent

of the 1,097 respondents say they are happy with their salary, while

37.6 per cent are looking to change jobs. Agency and in-house people

prize challenging work, and recognition above salary.



Salaries are broadly the same between the sexes although women appear to

have reached an agency glass ceiling, with fewer at chairman/managing

director level than in last year’s survey. Women fare better in-house

with a slight increase in the number holding directorships.



Average salaries vary greatly across the UK from pounds 34,779 in London

to pounds 22,708 in Wales.
