Survey asks estate agents to reveal their salaries and help make pay transparent

first_imgEstate agents are being urged to take part in a national salary survey of the industry to find out how much everyone earns.Employment agency Rayner Personnel says a comprehensive survey of pay in the industry has been needed for some time and that its initiative will set the record straight.But equal pay campaigners will be disappointed – none of the questions relate to gender.Nevertheless, once the poll has been filled in by enough estate agents, the data will be published to enable employees to benchmark their own salaries, work out how much a promotion might bring them in extra pay, how much colleagues are probably pocketing and to decide whether it’s better to work for a corporate or independent.It will also highlight the differences in pay between negotiators, valuers, branch managers and how much they vary across different regions of the UK.Eight questionsAgents are being asked to answer eight questions and takes less than five minutes to complete, while the information will be kept entirely anonymous.“The more people that participate, the more compelling and accurate the results will be,” says Josh Rayner, founder and CEO of Rayner Personnel.“This will then provide an accurate benchmark for companies and individuals alike so that both parties will truly know what ‘good’ looks like when jobs are advertised, packages negotiated so that new working relationships start and continue on the right footing.”TAKE THE SURVEY.salary Josh Rayner Rayner Personnel estate agent pay estate agent salaries July 3, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
