The calculator will bring a number of benefits to employees and jobseekers. In just a few clicks, jobseekers can quickly compare roles in their current location or neighbouring regions to see how pay fluctuates. This will also assist those considering a career move to understand which skills and roles are in demand and how this affects the salary they could be earning.

“Our research shows that growth may be on the cards this year with 68% of HR directors saying that they’re confident in the growth of their companies for the year. This is great news for those looking to move as any increase in business optimism will be reflected in the recruitment of new staff.”
