HR question: which salary survey or database is used by HR depts?

Discussion in 'Jobs (Discussion)' started by 4(T), May 12, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I need to discuss an expat salary package with a company that completely lacks any HR expertise or knowledge of the job location.

    I am aware that HR departments in major companies use certain third party salaries databases or surveys in order to estimate the market rate for new positions. I recall the data is listed by job title, number of reports, location, etc.

    Is there a specific market-leading database that is in common use, free or by subscription, or perhaps a specialist company that will cost up a position for a fee?

    The positions I am trying to value are in Russia and Kazakhstan, but a general international database would probably serve.

    Thx for any leads.
     
  2. Bump.

    I guess HR is not the career of choice for Arrsers....

  4. Another HR question but not worth starting a new thread on; a job advert shows the pay scale as below

    Salary: £16,043 - £20,249 BAR £18,212

    what does BAR mean in this context?

  6. My guess is basic annualised rate.

    And no, I'm not in HR.
     


  7. It is a qualification bar, meaning the maximum they will pay for this role is £18k with the lower of a specified qualification or £20k with the higher. E.g. an HGV3 holder might have one pay ceiling, an HGV1 holder another.

    A selection but no nearer an answer. the job is, ironically in the HR dept, so I could apply, get the job and then ask,
