We’re delighted to present Copeland’s annual Automotive industry Salary & Benefits Guide – the result of research carried out with automotive industry employers, employees and Copeland’s consultants.
We continued to experience a fast paced, candidate driven job market during 2017. Despite the SMMT reporting a decline in car sales, 60% of employers increased the size of their workforces and basic salaries increased by an average of 3.4%. Competition for the best candidate was still very high and employers found first line management roles the hardest to fill.
The majority of employees would look for at least a 10% increase in salary to move jobs although career progression was the overriding factor motivating those seeking a move.
