Salary Survey 2012

The 2012 survey results show that, among IES members, the best represented field, sector and organisational position are: air quality management, consultancy and project/middle manager.

Across the Environmental Sciences
The general profile across the environmental sciences suggest that the average professional is male, between 35 and 39 years old, and earning approximately £37,000.

2011 vs 2012
Since 2011 the pay gap between men and women has widened from £6,089 per year to £7,747 per year but because average salaries have increased overall, this difference represents a smaller proportion of gross annual salary (the indicator used by Government to examine the pay gap between women and men).
