Key Findings

With demand and competition for professionals based in this region continuing to rise, the focus on skills shortages within the built environment sector remains a major factor driving salary reviews. 'Location' again came out a key factor when considering a job change, highlighting local pressures affecting employers in East Anglia.

Our salary survey looked in more detail at other issues affecting the decision-making process when considering a new job, with questions this year related to the importance of work / life balance and the company culture and ethos. With flexible working conditions, the ability to reduce a daily commute and ‘the people that you work with’, all scoring highly alongside actual salary and benefits.

A more detailed report will follow the release of our new 2020 Salary Guides later this year, looking at the trends and key demands for each core sector of our business, with comment from each of our specialist team.
