The CR Career and Salary Survey 2017

We’re conducting a major piece of research about pay and work in the design and advertising industries, in partnership with Design Week. And we need your help

Are you paid fairly for the work you do? What is the industry standard salary for your role? How are job roles changing in the design and advertising industries? Are creative teams now more diverse than they used to be?

With your help we’d like to answer some of these questions and shed light on some of the inner workings of the design and advertising industries. We’d like to know the nature of your role, the perks and incentives that come with it, the size of your creative teams, how fulfilling your job is, and so on.

Please take our survey and help us gather the information we need. It should take you under 10 minutes. By participating you will be entered in a prize draw to win 3 x £100 Amazon vouchers.

The survey data that we are gathering along with our colleagues at Design Week will help us build a benchmarking tool, which you can use to compare your own position in the industry. The results will be published on the CR website.
