A root and branch poll of individual earnings in the estate agency industry has not been conducted in a while but property industry recruiter, Rayner Personnel, is doing so now in order to provide an authoritative assessment of pay across the sector.
The survey, which is completely anonymous, seeks to establish what the average estate agency package really looks like.
What is the typical basic salary?
What are the on-target earnings that are actually achieved?
How often is a car benefit included and does that simply reduce salary accordingly?
Rayner’s poll is made up of just eight questions and takes less than five minutes to complete and will also establish differences between independent agencies and corporates and, of course, the difference in what a negotiator takes home, versus a valuer, versus a branch manager, and by region of the UK.
Rayber says that when published, the anonymised data will answer such questions as:
Are your earnings in step with the average for your role?
What do your ambitions to climb the ladder really mean in additional pay?
Does your regional director earn what you think they do?
Which represents better pay, an independent or a corporate?
And, do the industry’s players expect to earn more or less or the same in 2021? A crucial question currently.
“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.”
The survey is live until the week commencing 13th July and the results will be published immediately thereafter.
