In Autumn 2019, 4,000 office support professionals responded to our annual salary survey, providing the details of their daily working lives for our Audience Insight Report.
Responses revealed a diverse range of professionals from Executive Assistants and Private PAs to Receptionists, Office Managers and Secretaries. Furthermore, the SecsintheCity audience is highly experienced, with 78% more than 6 years into their career – 23% of whom have spent more than two decades in the profession.
One of the key stories contained in this year’s report is the continued rise of the multi-boss role: over half of our audience now support 4 people or more, all the while being paid an average of £4,000 less per year than those in single-support roles. For those with multiple managers, extra responsibility does not equate to extra reward.
Positively, 11% of this year’s respondents were male. As the highest number of men yet to participate in the SecsintheCity Audience Insight Report, this indicates a step towards addressing gender imbalance in a professional traditionally dominated by women.
