Between 2010 and 2012, the average UK salary for corporate responsibility (CR) and sustainability jobs has risen by 14% to £56.4k, while in Europe (excluding the UK) it is £69k.

This is the finding of a survey of 847 industry professionals carried out by CR consultancy Acona, creative communications agency Flag, the publication Ethical Performance and Acre Resources, a recruiter specialising in those areas.Europe was the highest-earning region in the report, which also finds that internationally, 13% of professionals earn a salary in excess of £100k, and one in thirteen of these earn more than £180k.

Over 80% of respondents felt that their job security has improved or remained the same over the past 12 months, the same figure as that recorded in 2010, while 94% of respondents would recommend a career in the sector.
 
However, one area of CR professionals’ salary causing concern is the gap between male and female remuneration.  An average salary for a male is £67.3k, while an average salary for a female is £56.8k - representing a widening pay gap than was seen during the last salary survey in 2010.
 
Andy Cartland, founder and director of Acre Resources says: “A major development over the past 12 months is the increasing number of CEOs that are engaging with sustainability. This coupled with the positive salary trends points to a maturing sector that’s gaining in credibility and influence within the corporate structure.”
