Security – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2014

Our 2014 Mid-Year Report combines a review of the prevailing conditions in the security  recruitment market with the results of a comprehensive compensation survey, covering both permanent and contract security practitioners. The results of the survey, together with our own experience allows us to report that in spite of tight corporate cost controls, confidence and prospects in the security recruitment market are improving. We hope you will find the conclusions interesting.  

  • The number of vacancies in the security recruitment market has further increased in 2014 seemingly having peaked in 2013.    
  • Whilst averages are made up of a wide range of individual experiences, the average increase for security practitioners changing jobs is currently 17%. The average salary increase for those staying with their existing employer is 4%. 
  • 38% of security practitioners surveyed had changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all security practitioners but is up from 34% reported a year ago.
