What is the HR Salary Hub?

Whether you’re a seasoned HR professional or exploring a career in human resources, understanding the nuances of HR salaries is key to achieving financial success and professional satisfaction.

Why there is no harm in being open about salaries, it’s a topic we sometimes shy away from. Our hub gives you access to useful tips and resources in securing a pay rise, determining if you’re being paid fairly, salary guides in your region and benchmarking your salary against your industry peers by using our HR salary calculator (coming soon!).

What is my earning potential?

There are many factors that play a part in your take home salary, from level of role, experience and company sector.

For those starting out a career in HR as an Administrator can generally expect to receive a salary between £18,000 and £23,000. Moving into a HR Officer/Advisor position can see anything between £24,000 and £35,000.

HR Managers can earn anything between £35,000 and £55,000 and for those in a Director or above position can expect to receive £55,000 up to and in excess of £80000. As mentioned, the sector and your overall output and experience will always play a factor, in your HR salary alongside your negotiating skills when taking an accepting a role.
