• The b3 2017 salary survey

      Hot off the press – b3’s 2017 food manufacturing salary survey

      Now in its seventh year, the survey has been complied to help both companies and employers ensure that they are paying enough, and being paid enough, respectively!

      The survey itself is based on the roles that we have worked on over the last year – almost 50 different job titles covering all levels from technical and engineering to operations and development. With each one we have put the lowest salary and highest salaries, plus the overall average. In addition we have compared each figure with the previous years’ figures so you can see the movement in salaries – some big winners, but also some losers! 

      We hope that you find our 2017 salary survey of interest and use – please also see our previous surveys, links for which can be found below.  You may also be interested in other free b3 resources that we offer to both companies and candidates alike – links can be found in the drop down menus at the top but here are a couple of suggested ones:

      • How to successfully recruit – taking you through the whole process from writing job descriptions (with examples), advertising and sourcing candidates, interviewing techniques and making an offer.
      • The secrets of getting that job – CV guidelines, cover letters, surviving an interview, questions that you should be asking and able to answer, presentations, counter offers, resigning and much more.

      If you decide that you’re not being paid enough then you can also search through our jobs, and if you’re looking to recruit then we can send you our latest list of active candidates.  Alternatively, if you require some lighter-hearted reading, have a look at some of our b3 blogs.
