Salary Survey 2019

Salary Changes: 2012-2019


We are pleased to release our salary survey figures taking us up to 2019.

Position Average Salary Salary Range
Receptionist £24,281 (£18,000 - £30,000)
Team Assistant £28,000 (£23,000 - £36,000)
Office Manager £29,025 (£22,000 - £38,000)
Personal Assistant £38,370 (£24,000 - £50,000)
Executive Assistant £48,097 (£34,000 - £70,000)
Chief of Staff £57,500 (£55,000 - £70,000)
Global PA £64,167 (£50,000 - £75,000)

These figures are taken from actual jobs placed by Bain and Gray across the last year, from all industry sectors. Our new statistics also include The Global PA role and The Chief of Staff role, which indicates a broadening of the Executive support market to be more involved with the business as a whole, and HNWI requiring a bigger global role from their PA’s. This is exciting for PAs looking for more and growing within their positions.

The salaries at the Reception and Office Manager level have not notably increased, however, the Team Assistant position is continuing to develop and grow as a position to reflect further demands being put on team support. We have noticed more Team Assistants supporting a wider group of more Senior positions within a business, this may on one level be due to cutting down on more senior PA roles and also a factor in younger Directors being more self sufficient and less ‘traditional’ in their PA support needs.

Please do speak to one of our consultants if you would like to discuss any areas of our salary survey in more detail.
