Third Sector Annual Pay Award Survey 2018


The seventh annual Third Sector Cost of Living Award Survey has a new name, the Third Sector Annual Pay Award Survey.

Benchmark your actual 2017 annual pay award, and your proposed pay award for 2018, against others in the sector.


The survey, which took place in November 2017, established the basis upon which annual pay awards are made among third sector organisations, and what expectations are for an award in the coming year.
