It’s the dreaded question – how much are you expecting for this role? With so many salaries listed as ‘dependent on experience’ or ‘competitive’, it’s difficult to know what to expect or how to negotiate.
Here at Journo Resources we’re bored of this secretive nonsense and believe it doesn’t help candidates or employers. In short, those applying for jobs get short changed, especially if they’re already in a disadvantaged group, while those hiring can often find their time is wasted when expectations don’t match up.
We’ve long been asking for employers to put salary ranges on their adverts, but that’s a slow process, so this data is here to fill the gap. Crowd-sourced from hundreds of our supporters, we’ve collated the latest data on how much real journalists are paid for real jobs.
