Table 1. Showing Increase in Total Compensation for 2016 by Job. Data based on 15691 entries in 2015/2016 in London.

Let’s Get Digital: Marketing & Communications come first in our list with a staggering increase of 37% to their total compensation which reflects an ever-increasing demand for talent and experienced managers.

HR to the rescue: With intense innovating and disrupting activity in the HR sectors, companies find themselves expanding their HR departments and demanding new skills such as managing applications, data outputs from real-time gathering tools. HR managers are expanding their skill sets and are in high demand to help companies adapt their culture and management style to millennials and Gen Y.

Always do your research: Research employees both in Banking and the Financial Buy-Side have seen their remuneration increase this year by 12% and 22% respectively. Banks and Funds seeking to beat competition by innovative investments, make research more relevant than ever while the sell-side need to back their trading decisions and macro views with solid research papers.

The case of IT: Technology firms competing with Banks for the top talent in IT are pushing remuneration up. The 12% increase in total compensation for Java developers might seem way below the 23% increase for C# developers. Java developers however were already enjoying high rewards compared tor their C# colleagues who are now catching up!
