Since 2005 Spinnaker has been providing reliable salary data
for shipping employers, their boards and remuneration committees.
Over 150 shipping companies, including shipowners, operators, shipmanagers, oil companies, commodity groups, shipbrokers, classification societies, ship & port agents take part in Spinnaker’s annual salary surveys. In order to participate, companies must join one or both of our benchmarking associations, the Maritime HR Association for shore-based salaries, or the Seafarer Employers’ Association for seafarer wage cost reports. Spinnaker also produces biennial P&I salary survey reports.
Spinnaker publishes a P&I Club Salary Survey Report every 2 years.
The report includes roles in claims, both legally qualified and non-qualified, underwriting and loss prevention from junior to director level, as well as roles in corporate services and the senior leadership team.
Alongside the benchmarking of base salaries, total compensation and bonuses, the report also includes analysis of common benefits such as pensions, healthcare, leave benefits and also pay review budget projections.
The last P&I Club salary survey took place in 2019 and included over 1,600 incumbents, enabling us to report more than 100 P&I roles in the UK, Greece, Hong Kong and Singapore.
