Feeling Undervalued....?

by Guy
Date: Oct 2009
Feeling under valued? You are not the only one a recent salary survey by Croner Reward indicates Midlands based Marketing professionals are not being rewarded in line with their peers from other parts of the country. The contrast in salary is most notable at Marketing Director level, where believe it or not if you work in the Midlands you can expect to earn 8.7% less than the national average! The same phenomena is true throughout the marketing discipline, so whether your current job role is Marketing Assistant, Account Manager, Marketing Manager etc the likelihood is you are being underpaid - compared to other marketing professionals in equivalent roles around the country.
 
What can you do to improve your financial situation? A professional qualification or membership will certainly help, according to the same research. Marketing professionals with a qualification from the CIM typically earn 12% more than those without in similar positions. Why not visit the Chartered Institute of Marketing website for further information on suitable courses.
