Pay gulf widens as HR staff move up the ladderOn 9 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today The yawning gap between the pay of public and private sector HRprofessionals has been revealed by a survey of almost 7,000 Personneltoday.comusers. The findings confirm what we have suspected all along that the pay gulfwidens with seniority. While the gap between private sector HR managers andthose in the public sector is more than £5,000 (around 14 per cent of salary),the difference at HR director level is more than £16,000 (nearly 21 per cent). However, the pay discrepancies are not causing public sector HR workers toflee, as roughly the same proportion of public sector and private sectoremployees are keeping an eye on the jobs market. Around 30 per cent of respondents (both public and private) are activelyseeking a new job, and a further 51 per cent of public sector and 46 per centof private sector HR professionals say they would jump ship if the right jobcame along.
