The HR Consulting team at Spinnaker Global have spent the last few months receiving, checking and reviewing thousands of lines of salary data provided by 96 shipping companies. This year’s report encompasses more than 26,000 maritime professionals in 119 countries – up 24% and 29% respectively on last year. The Association grows year on year, and so too does the salary survey – making 2016 the biggest Maritime Salary Survey to date.
2017 already looks set to be bigger still, as the introduction of even more shore based job families looks likely. Spinnaker are also launching seafarers salary benchmarking in 2017, providing a one stop shop for your maritime salary data needs.
If you are interested in membership of the Maritime HR Association and this year’s salary survey please contact Helen McCaughran HMcCaughran@spinnaker-global.com or visit the website https://hrc.spinnaker-global.com for further information.
The Maritime HR Association is a membership body established in 2005 by eight founding shipping companies. The membership has grown substantially since this time, with over 90 shipowners, shipmanagers, shipbrokers, commodities, bunkers, oil majors and liner companies worldwide. It was set up to meet the growing demand from shipping HR professionals for accurate benchmarking data. The Association therefore has two main goals: Provide robust and reliable compensation & benefits benchmarking data for global shipping jobs; Share ideas and experience with regards to HR policies and best practice. To meet these goals, we work alongside the members to benchmark global shorebased staff salaries and bonuses and provide regular information exchanges and surveys on benefits and HR policies and practice. All of our activities are carried out within the bounds of anti-trust regulations. Visit www.hrc.spinnaker-global.com.
