The ambience was cheerful at the roundtable held last week by London-based recruitment agency EMR to discuss the findings from its latest UK IR salary survey, the last of which was conducted in 2012.
‘The first thing that strikes me is the clear improvement in market confidence,’ enthused Anastasia Pittas, a senior consultant. ‘That’s not only due to the fact that 66 percent of IROs report a salary increase. Half of respondents say they are optimistic about the future of the UK economy – that’s 30 percent more than three years ago.’
Another notable highlight this year is the increase in the number of candidates with a capital markets background: half of new registrants with EMR's IR practice now come from the buy side, the sell side, corporate broking or equity sales. Also nearly 60 percent of the 150 respondents to the survey display a financial qualification, and 22 percent have passed the IR Society’s Certificate in IR.
