Benchmark salaries and benefits for staff in the charities sector

Key points

  • Charities may need to benchmark the pay and benefits of staff in the voluntary sector against those provided by other employers during the pay review process, when designing or reviewing a pay and grading structure or when recruiting to new roles.
  • Employers will need access to specialised salary data on staff working in specialist fundraising and service delivery roles as well as those in common office and professional roles to ensure that they are able to benchmark pay and employee benefits accurately.
  • Larger voluntary sector employers may want to use data that relates specifically to other top charities.
