County Vs Role
In this aspect, Cambridgeshire pays the highest salaries on average which concurs with other recent studies on the UK job market. In these studies, Cambridge tends to feature in as one of the strongest job markets in the UK. The Northern Home Counties also pay higher than the average in this salary survey and the East of England pays higher than other parts of the UK.
Within this salary survey Norfolk/Suffolk pay -2.51% compared to other counties. This is an improvement on last year’s results but still below the average variation in our specialised area. Both Essex and Northants/Leics have also got negative average variations. The amount of candidates actively seeking a marketing role in these areas is fewer than those in Cambridgeshire for example, which indicates that employers based in Essex or Northants/Leics can offer lower salaries because competition for candidates is less. However, these locations only pay minus 1 percent so the difference is not a huge amount.
