The Salary Guide, now entering its third year, will be aiming to improve on the nearly 11,000 respondents who contributed information and opinions for the 2011 report. More than 50 countries and 20 industry disciplines are represented in the current guide.
Hays Oil and Gas and Oil and Gas Job Search will start compiling data from this month and those interested in contributing can do so at http://www.oilandgasjobsearch.com/
Matt Underhill of Hays Oil and Gas comments: “The Salary Guide in 2011 was based on nearly 11,000 respondents, up from 7,000 on the 2010 survey. For 2012 we are aiming to build on that success, and a comparable increase is certainly possible. This level of response, we believe, makes the insights invaluable.”
The two companies between them have at their disposal rapidly growing databases with combined numbers of over 450,000 registered oil and gas professionals to help meet those targets.
Underhill further continues: “The breadth and depth of information gathered offers recruiters and professionals alike a real insight into the way the industry is heading.”
The 2011 Salary Guide was upbeat in its conclusions, illustrating that recruitment and wages were moving in an upward direction reflecting an industry firmly putting the recession behind it.
Among its many insights was the continuing strength of contractors in receiving higher rates. The UK, for instance, posted a remarkable 30% rise in rates – a very promising sign as contractor wages are often viewed as indicators of where the market is heading. It was also noted that Australia, and Asia Pacific at large was leading the way in terms of permanent staff salary increases post recession.
Duncan Freer, Managing Director at Oil and Gas Job Search comments: “Over 100,000 oil and gas professionals have read the 2011 Salary Guide to date. It is a substantial increase on the 35,000 downloads of the inaugural report.”
Freer adds: “We want our guide to become an annual landmark for the those in oil and gas, a document that industry professionals and stake holders look forward to receiving each year. The uptake in downloads, hard copies and media coverage as well as the fantastic contributions we receive from industry professionals means we are well on our way to achieving that aim.”
