CIPD Level 3

Here are just some of the report’s findings from around the country:

  • London is showing a 5.6% increase in average salaries for HR Administrators up to £28,300.
  • The North West is reporting a shortage of skills in entry level roles with salaries rising to an average of £23,100.
  • Northern Ireland has seen a dramatic increase in the average salaries of HR Administrators up by 11.1% to between £20,000 and £22,300.
  • The average salaries of HR starter jobs in the East Midlands now stand at £22,800, an increase of 3.6%.

Despite the high demand in entry level roles, HR is still proving to be a competitive sector with many of those interviewed saying that CIPD qualifications are a necessity. Overall, 72% of HR practitioners surveyed said that it was harder to find people with the right skills to join the profession.
