Bosses told to dig deep as thriving jobs market pushes pay up

AGENTS have been told to go for gold in their pay
negotiations this year as new figures suggest travel staff could
take home an extra £3,000.

The 2005 Salary Forecast, by recruitment company AA
Appointments, said travel staff are in line for big pay increases
this year – the first significant hikes since September
11.

AA Appointments’annual survey was compiled by taking the
average salaries from 3,500 job vacancies on their books. The
figures come from 1,500 companies and suggest retailers stand to
get pay rises of between £1,000 and £3,000 this year.

AA Appointments managing director John Tolmie said the market is
now “candidate driven” with staff having “many options”. Employers
know they have not increased pay for their staff recently, but they
should or employees will vote with their feet,” he warned.
