Security – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2015

Our 2015 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 the security profession is well supported and that the threats it looks to are expected to increase. 
  • The number of vacancies in the security recruitment market has plateaued but remains at a historically high level. 
  • Whilst averages are made up of a wide range of individual experiences, the average increase for a security practitioner changing jobs is currently 17.1%, up from 16.8% in 2014. The average salary increase for those staying with their existing employer is 4.9%, up from 3.8% in 2014. 
  • 25% of security practitioners surveyed have changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all security practitioners, but is down from the 38% reported a year ago.
