The Social Care Salary Survey Report 2017

Welcome to our Salary Survey Report 2017

This year to give you even more of a comprehensive review we have combined the forces of our turro and AJ Recruitment businesses to produce The Social Care Salary Survey 2017.

We have trawled the sector looking high and low to ensure we capture the widest and largest group of salary data we could find.

This will help you make confident informed decisions about the pay in your organisation and in your personal role. Sometimes, as a social care manager, it can feel like you are alone as there has been a lack of tools and resources available to help you structure and benchmark salaries and benefit packages. We know this because it is one of the most frequent questions we are asked as recruiters. Social care leaders often ask “How do I know what the market is saying on pay and how can I stay ahead of my competitors with candidate attraction?”

Our 2017 Salary Survey should help you in that quest and hopefully go some way in to answering those and other questions you may have.

We would like to thank all respondents who have taken the time to contribute to this invaluable insight into the social care salary structure across the UK.

Throughout the rest of the year we will continue to use our findings from this survey to support our discussions with senior social care leaders we work with. This will support help them with their frontline workforce staffing solutions and senior management structure hiring.

The aim of this survey is to get a clear picture of salaries and bonuses being paid in social care organisations across the UK. We want to be able to give you (at a glance) the information you need to help you make the most informed recruitment decisions possible.

  • Levels of pay
  • Bonuses
  • Other rewards

We asked many questions so we really understood what people thought about their pay and how this impacted on their decisions when applying for and considering their next role. In addition, we also considered the categories below.

  • Pay Feelings
  • Years of Service
  • Workforce Movement
  • Reasons for Joining the Sector
  • Pay Rise Influencers


We hope you find this survey report useful.
