Salary and Benefits: Salary surveys enable you to benchmark your own financial remuneration and also provide an insight into the current state of the recruitment market for trainees as well as qualifieds, writes Calum Robson. In a job market where students and affiliates are constantly being told how marketable and desirable they are, how can you evaluate your worth within an organisation - or establish what you should credibly demand from a potential new employer? Salary surveys produced by specialist recruitment consultancies - often in conjunction with professional accountancy bodies, trade journals or job websites - are an excellent place to start. But with seemingly wild variances to be found between figures compiled by different organisations, it's important to know how to get behind the numbers before you can properly use them to leverage up your own remuneration.
