salary, coins, money, pay

The annual salary reports produced by Spinnaker’s Maritime HR Association for shore-based shipping jobs have now been released with 2021 data.

In 2021, 78 maritime companies participated in the survey, providing data for more than 32,000 maritime industry professionals in 101 countries.

Following analysis of this data, we can provide salary and bonus benchmarking reports for all the major shipping hubs globally, in job families including Chartering, Technical and Marine and Operations.

At a time when we are seeing so much change, the importance of trusted and robust salary benchmarking data is increasingly important. Members of the Maritime HR Association receive the most comprehensive shore-based compensation data available in the shipping industry.

“We joined the Maritime HR Association back in 2010 when we were struggling to source fair market salaries for our shore personnel in several locations. Spinnaker was unbelievably helpful giving us the support we needed and continued with excellent service for all the years. Over the time they grew the Association by adding more and more members in different locations and increasing the quality of salary and benefits data. They added additional services like bespoke reports or benefits surveys which is a great initiative to ask members for their feedback. Being member of the association gives us the opportunity to have a better understanding of salaries in shipping industry and helps us to pay fair salaries and benefits around the globe.”Oldendorff

These reports are also accessible to new members who would like to join the Association and participate themselves in forthcoming surveys. We would be delighted to have a discussion with shipping companies who are thinking of joining the Association.

Member benefits also include a ticket to our annual conference, participation in our regular information exchanges on topics such as parental leave and the impact of covid on holiday allowances, plus our informative Market Analysis reports which take a deeper look at the data and includes further analysis on topics such as gender and nationality within the industry.

“Subscribing to the Maritime HR Association has provided us over the last six years with invaluable information. We have offices spread over all the world and having reliable data for each country ensures we have a consistent approach in all of our offices which is key in attracting and retaining key talent. The Spinnaker team is always responsive and very reliable in getting back to us.”Fednav
