TPP Recruitment Ltd shares their 2018 Non-Profit Salary, Rewards and Retention Survey results

TPP Recruitment’s latest non-profit salary, rewards and retention survey 2018 highlights the challenges that charities are facing in retaining top talent.

In a survey of professionals across the sector, 27% of HR respondents stated that their current role is not progressing their career and 83% stated that they are either looking for a new role or would consider moving for the right role.

A higher salary remains the number one motivator for HR professionals when looking for a new job. Despite a 2% increase for HR salaries since 2017, 96% feel salaries have stayed the same or increased a little.

The report also looked at the gender pay gap within non-profit organisations, overall there was an 8% gap in favour of males, however HR was the only job function with a gap in favour of females, at 6%. This is most likely due to the higher number of women in Director level roles within HR.

Flexible working

Flexible working remains the number one desired benefit, despite only 59% receiving this.  68% stated they would be enticed to apply for a job that allows them to work from home.

Bita Heffernan, Business Manager at TPP Recruitment commented on the survey: “We have seen an increase for recruitment specialists with change management experience (at junior/mid-level.) HR teams need to ensure they have up-to-date policies and procedures, relevant to their people and the sector and employers need to be flexible and realistic in this candidate-short market.”
