The Harris Hill Salary Survey
The 2022 survey is our first post-pandemic review of salaries, showing the impact of that time on remuneration in the sector, looking at reasons for the continued candidate shortage, and exploring the new pandemic-inspired essential: flexible working.

NB: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic there was no edition produced in 2020 or 2021.
