Collins McNicholas is pleased to publish its 2013 Salary Survey of management, professional and administrative salaries in Ireland.

These salaries are based on the actual salary information provided by our clients for vacancies we have worked on in the first three months of this year. The information is largely based on salaries in the multinational sector which has accounted for the vast majority of the positions we have worked on year to date. The information is corroborated by the salary data supplied to us by job seekers who register with us and are in employment at the time of registration. In the period between January and March 2013, we registered over 3500 candidates. For the purposes of this salary survey, we have recorded salary levels for professionals with between 3/5 years’ experience. Professionals with between 3/5 years’ experience tend to be the most sought after and that is why we have used this group.

It is also worth pointing out that the information is based on a significantly increased number of job vacancies and placements a year to date which reflects market commentary relating to the significant pick up in the export sector in the last three years. In the period between January and March 2013, we registered over 400 new job vacancies. This shows an increase of 12% from the same period last year. This increased number of vacancies, as well as being a tangible indicator of an increase in economic activity in 2013, also means there can be a high level of confidence in the accuracy of the information supplied in this salary survey, as it is based on a significantly larger sample of open vacancies this year.

We hope the information will prove to be of value to companies that are established in Ireland and also to multinational companies who are considering establishing a presence in Ireland. If you have any queries please feel free to contact me on (071) 91 42411 or 087 2860239 or email me on
