HR Consulting from Spinnaker Global has this week started the data collection process for its annual maritime salary survey.
The survey, now in its ninth year, benchmarks the annual base salaries, allowances and bonuses of nearly 100 shore-based shipping jobs, including commercial, operations, technical, marine and safety, crewing, newbuildings, shipbroking, purchasing, legal, HR and many more.
Participation is open to members of the Maritime HR Association; a membership body of global maritime employers.
“This year will be the biggest survey we have undertaken. We have over 90 members of the Association worldwide providing data for jobs in over 60 countries” said HR Consulting’s compensation and benefits consultant, Emily Warren.
MD of HR Consulting, Karen Waltham, added “the data we provide gives a valuable insight into salary trends in the maritime world. It’s one of the biggest and only surveys of its kind in the industry.”
The survey is scheduled for distribution in late September, followed one month later by the annual market analysis report; a tool for HR and business professionals to view pay projections, inflation rates, bonus trends and differences in pay between company types and vessel types.
