Security – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2016

 Our 2016 Mid-Year Report combines a review of the prevailing conditions in the security recruitment market with the results of a comprehensive compensation survey of security practitioners registered with Barclay Simpson. The survey was undertaken in June 2016 prior to the EU referendum. The results of the survey, together with our own experience, allows us to report that the security profession remains well supported and the number of vacancies continues to grow in response to the threat landscape.

  • The number of vacancies in the security recruitment market remains at a historically high level.
  • Whilst average figures can reflect a wide range of individual experiences, the average increase for a security practitioner changing jobs is currently down from 17% in 2015 to 16%. However, the average salary increase for those staying with their existing employer is 5.6%, up from 4.9% in 2015.
  • 31% of security practitioners surveyed have changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all security practitioners, but is up from the 25% reported a year ago.
