Pay and Prospects Survey
The results of the BIFM Pay and Prospects Survey 2017 highlighted the tangible benefits that FM professionals gain from BIFM membership and qualifications.
Formerly known as the Salary Survey, the Pay and Prospects Survey is a well-established and invaluable piece of research which contributes to a better understanding of the FM industry and the outlook for FM professionals in relation to salary, job satisfaction and development. With 12 years of trend data, the survey offers a detailed insight into employment within the FM sector and helps to track evolving working conditions for FM professionals.
The latest survey, which was completed by over 500 FM professionals between October and November 2017, reveals a continued emphasis on the significance of salary levels. The industry continues to experience some fluctuation in relation to pay progression, but this is accompanied by improved prospects for promotion. Little has changed in length of service with a current employer since the survey began.
