Sellick Partnership release annual Salary Guide and Market Insight Report, which shows need for creative remuneration package structures

Finance and legal recruitment specialist, Sellick Partnership, have launched their annual Salary Guide and Market Insight Report, showing jobseekers in the finance industry are looking for the full package when it comes to their next employer. In addition to a competitive salary, today's jobseeker considers factors such as development opportunities, flexible working policies, private healthcare, corporate social responsibility and the employer's brand when weighing up job offers.

Competition for talent is severe, and employers are facing the dual challenge of significant skill shortages, as well as retaining top professionals. Top candidates who possess niche, hard-to-find skills such as technical reporting regularly receive multiple job offers and are in a strong position to negotiate starting salary. Companies therefore must realise competitive remuneration packages are essential to attract and retain the best talent/candidates.

Hugh Almond, Specialist Financial Recruitment Consultant at Sellick Partnership adds: "It's natural for employers to assume that annual pay reviews are the best way to retain staff, but it's vital that the whole remuneration package is considered – by failing to do this they risk losing star employees and attracting fresh talent. With skills shortages and tough competition, finance firms must recognise the appeal of non-financial perks and work these into staff packages if they want to keep hold of the very best talent and maintain a competitive edge."
