​The Harris Hill Salary Survey

Click a cover to view or download.




A rare year in which demand for candidates far exceeded supply, driving sizeable salary increases in many areas, and leading us to investigate what organisations without the budget to compete on salaries can do to attract new talent.

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.

For our 2019 survey we teamed up with market-leading job board CharityJob, bringing fresh insight and a vast wealth of information to the 2019 Salary Report: our biggest and most comprehensive to date, and the definitive guide to charity sector salaries.




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