  3. 3. WelcomeWe are delighted to say that the year just passed, proved to be extremely encouraging from a recruitment perspec-tive. The recruitment industry showed a notable level of increased activity. Again the sentiment could have beendescribed as optimistic and there certainly seemed to be a sense that “the worst” was well behind us. We can only speak from our own experience but Ireland Inc’s reputation particularly in the US seems to have beenwell and truly restored. Ireland remains a very attractive location for multinationals looking to set up operationsoverseas and more particularly, a preferential market in which to headquarter their European business. We aredelighted to say that we supported a number of existing and start up multinationals with high volume recruitmentengagements as well as one off niche hiring requirements.To back up the increase in the number of multinational recruitment assignments that we handled the IDA an-nounced in January 2012 a jump of almost 20 per cent in foreign direct investment (FDI) during 2011 which core-lated in 13,000 new jobs being created. IDA Ireland said there was a record number of 148 new investments wonduring the year across all industry segments. Most encouragingly, there was an increase of 30% in the number ofcompanies investing in Ireland for the first time.That said, the domestic market here still remains “sluggish”. Specific markets that continue to face challenges dueto the continuing drop in consumer spending are Hospitality and Catering, Retail, Manufacturing and Construction.We have made a number of changes to our own business during 2011. As is our company policy we have continuedto grow the company by 25% year on year both in terms of headcount and revenue. We are delighted to say thatwe strengthened our team with a number of strategic hires into the IT and Insurance & Actuarial Markets in orderto meet the demand of our clients. We again moved to larger offices that will allow us to continue to grow over thenext 12 months. We will be rolling out our new website together with our rebrand towards the end of Q1 2012.Watch this space!I would like to thank all our existing clients for their continued support. We look forward to working with you closelyand supporting you with any hiring engagements that you may have during the coming year. Finally feel free to con-tact any of our team regarding any questions or queries that you may have on our 2011/2012 Salary Survey.Warm regards,Donal O’BrienManaging Director
  4. 4. Outlook 2012On a macro-level, 2011 was very much a year of two halves, particularly with regards to sentiment. The first half ofthe year showed improved economic figures and predictions, leading to a belief by many that the corner Ireland hasbeen looking to turn for some time now had finally arrived. A Eurozone crisis compounded by actions, and in mostcases inactions, from European leaders coupled with less than favourable Irish exchequer tax returns dealt a signifi-cant blow to the summertime optimism.The start of 2012 sees the uncertainty that was prevalent for the second half of 2011 still very much in place in theIrish and world economies. Were the Eurozone matter to be resolved successfully and over a short period of time,it would give a real boost to the economic outlook. The US economy did show signs of recovery toward the sec-ond half of 2011. This gives us real optimism that there may be a general improvement in the world economy. Thiswould undoubtedly have a positive knock-on effect for the export-reliant Irish economy.A European-wide piece of legislation, the Agency Workers Directive (AWD), could have a big impact for the recruit-ment industry in Ireland in 2012. This is very much dependent on how it is legislated for by the Dáil. There is everypossibility that it could lead to a decrease in demand for temporary workers to be replaced by an increase in thenumber of permanent roles created causing a squeeze upwards in permanent salaries. Further, this increase maynot equal the amount of temporary roles which potentially might be lost, possibly resulting in a reduction in thenumber of people employed.The recruitment market, although not shielded from the marco-economic outlook, appears to be in good healthfacing into 2012. Most sectors are still faced with the challenges of identifying key resources, with professionalspossessing specialised skill-sets as much in demand as before. According to IBEC, in its survey of Irish CEOs, ap-proximately one quarter (23%) of companies expect to see increases in salaries in 2012, with just 5% anticipating areduction in salaries. These results reflect Abrivia Recruitment’s experience and feedback for the year ahead toowith some sectors like IT, likely to see its consistent upward trend continue unabated over the next twelve months.2012 Abrivia Recruitmentwww.abrivia.ie

  6. 6. 2011 in Review We saw a slight increase in the volume of roles that we received from in the Ac- Financial Services 2012 countancy Financial Services market in 2011. We can point to our own internal Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey numbers and say that specifically there was a 6% increase in the volume of roles Executive € € € € that we received from our clients. Finance Director 100K - 200K 100K - 200K 80K - 180K 80K - 180K All sectors within the Financial Services market reflected this improved volume of activity which includes Banking, Insurance and Funds. Overall, salaries and packages Tax Director 100K - 160K 100K - 160K 80K - 130K 80K - 130K remained “steady” with only some marginal increases for “hard to fill positions”. Internal Audit Director 100K - 160K 100K - 160K 80K - 130K 80K - 130K Candidates that were in demand included Financial Reporting Accountants in Funds Financial Controller 65K - 95K 65K - 95K 55K - 85K 50K - 85K with good US and UK GAAP skills. Many clients were looking for candidates with Reporting exposure to Solvency II either within the domestic market or returning from over- seas countries especially the UK. We also saw the continuing trend in the market of Finance Manager 58K - 72K 58K - 72K 52K - 68K 52K - 68K more accountants moving into the areas of Compliance, Risk and Internal Audit.

There is still significant uncertainty in the financial markets internationally and this coupled with a challenging domestic financial services envi- Management Account- 40K - 46K 40K - 46K 38K - 44K 38K - 44K ronment means that there is likely to be limited opportunities in the Ireland.

  7. 7. 2011 in Review The 2011 Industry & Commerce Accountancy market very much reflected the over- Industry & Commerce 2012 all improvement experienced by the recruitment industry in Ireland. This meant Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey that there was an upward curve for the number of positions registered by clients Executive € € € € with ourselves. In total the Industry & Commerce Accountancy market was up by as much as 12% on 2010 levels and peaked in September 2011. Finance Director 100K - 200K 100K - 200K 80K - 180K 80K - 180K To the surprise of many clients, certain key accountancy skill sets were still very dif- Head of Tax 100K - 150K 100K - 150K 80K - 130K 80K - 130K ficult to find in the market, one of those being Internal Audit. We found that there Head of Internal Audit 90K - 140K 90K - 150K 80K - 130K 80K - 130K appeared to be a shortage of recently qualified accountants in the market coming from practice and industry. This could be down to the increased volume of roles Financial Controller 65k - 95K 65K - 95K 55K - 85K 50K - 85K in the market and the heightened competition from clients for quality qualified Reporting candidates. FP & A Manager 62K - 82K 62K - 82K 55K - 70K 55K - 70K Sectors that continued to show strong growth included the FMCG, Pharmaceutical Finance Manager 58K - 72K 58K - 72K 52K - 68K 52K - 68K and Hi-Tec industries. Given that the export sector remained very strong for muchAbrivia of 2011 it was no surprise that a large proportion of our clients that were hiring Project Accountant 50K - 65K 50K - 65K 44K - 60K 44K - 60K Abrivia Accountancy | Industry & Commerce were multinationals and Irish Plc’s. A welcome trend in the market was that a sig- nificant portion of our clients reinstated bonuses. One final trend is that we noticed Group Accountant 45K - 58K 45K - 55K 42K - 55K 42K - 55K more clients coming to us to help them fill mid and junior level finance positions. Systems Accountant 44K - 55K 44K - 55K 42K - 55K 42K - 55K Financial Accountant 42K - 48K 42K - 48K 38K - 46K 38K - 46K Expectations for 2012 Management Account- 40K - 46K 40K - 46K 40K - 46K 40K - 46K ant The sentiment for most clients is one of cautious optimism. There is a sense that the “worst is over” from a market perspective. That said the uncertainty over the Internal Audit Eurozone crisis remains very unhelpful. Internal Audit Mgr 58K - 75K 58K - 75K 55K - 62K 55K - 62K With this in mind we expect that many of our large and a growing portion of our Internal Auditor 42K - 50K 42K - 50K 38K - 46K 38K - 46K small and medium sized clients, who have less exposure to the domestic market, will continue to perform strongly and therefore look to hire talented finance profes- Part Qualified sionals. It is likely that the demand for recently qualified accountants from industry Financial Accountant 32K - 42K 32K - 42K 28K - 36K 28K - 36K will remain high. This will mean that the competition to attract and retain the best young accountants will again prove difficult for clients.

  8. 8. 2011 in Review: 2011 was a buoyant year in the practice market. The increase in recruitment, Public Practice 2012 particularly by large firms, which started in the latter half of 2010 continued right Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey throughout 2011. It was encouraging to note that larger firms were recruiting Public Practice € € € € across all areas including audit, restructuring, consulting and corporate finance. Another positive for the sector was that more medium sized firms actively began to Partner 150K-250K 150K-250K 100K-250K 100K-250K engage in the market. Director 80K-130K 80K-140K 70K-120K 70K-120K This may have been in response to losing staff to larger firms/industry as the Senior Manager 65K-85K 65K-85K 60K-70K 60K-70K surplus of candidates from 2009 has long disappeared. Although cash flow is still a major issue for many, smaller firms have streamlined to such an extent that they Manager 50K-65K 55K-65K 48K-60K 50K-65K have to replace staff who move on or any pickup in work now requires a new hire. Assistant Manager/ 45K-55K 48K-53K 40K-50K 43K-50K For those firms wishing to hire there is a lack of suitably qualified/skilled candidates Senior Accountant to satisfy the demand so we are now again seeing candidates attaining multiple Senior 36K-46K 37K-47K 30K-42K 33K-43K offers.

Trainee/Graduate 17K-23K 18K-24K 16K-20K 16K-20K Expectations for 2012: After a year and a half of consolidation and growth in the practice market, 2012 is set up to be another active period. The main pressure will again be for audit and consultancy staff. We expect further increases in hires by small & medium sized firms with larger firms continuing to hire aggressively. Unless there is a dampening effect from the current Eurozone crisis, 2012 will be a tough market for employers to recruit candidates and the recent upward pressure on salaries may intensify.

  9. 9. 2011 In Review: The past year has seen a marked increase in the number of tax positions created Tax 2012 compared to 2010. Although tax roles in practice are still not plentiful there were a Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey number of hires made at a tax senior and manager level which is in stark contrast to TAX € € € € the years 2009/2010. Interestingly, roles not only became available with large firms but also with medium sized firms. Partner 150K - 250K 150K-250K 100K-250K 100K-250K Roles were mainly in Corporate Tax but as the year moved on positions were Head of Tax (Industry/ 100K-250K 100K-250K 100K-150K 100K-150K further created in VAT and Personal Tax which is an encouraging sign.

Senior Underwriter 32K-55K 30K-55K 32K-50K 32K-50K We expect that in key areas remuneration may become a greater issue this year with employers focusing more on quality over cost. The knock on effect of in- Loan Administrator 24K-35K 25K-37K 22K-32K 22K-32K creased recruitment activity in 2011 and the latter half of 2010 also means that Mortgage Administrator 22K-28K 22K-30K 22K-28K 22K-28K certain candidate profiles have become more difficult to source, and as more financial entities begin to hire again this year the competition for top talent is likely Customer Service 23K-30K 24K-31K 23K-28K 23K-28K to increase.

  13. 13. 2011 in Review The compliance, risk and regulatory sectors grew substantially in 2011 and for many Compliance & Risk 2012 organisations it has become a primary area of focus from a recruitment perspective. Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey Compliance € € € € Both within professional services and industry, there has been a significant drive to acquire leading talent to navigate institutions through a new regulatory reality. Head of Compliance 95K-165K 100K-165K 80K-105K 80K-105K Across almost every level and industry, remuneration and benchmarking is being more closely examined with salaries for individuals in key positions seeing a definite Snr Compliance 78K-93K 87K-96K 60K-80K 60K-80K increase. At more senior levels within professional services, strong regulatory / en- Manager forcement / risk advisory candidates are being offered greater flexibility in terms of Compliance Manager 62K-75K 67K-82K 56K-74K 56K-74K packages (basic salary, car allowance, bonus etc.,). Similarly, within Industry - there is a greater focus on the wider business impact that highly experienced compliance Compliance Officer 44K-67K 58K-70K 40K-53K 40K-53K professionals can offer, and as a result there is more of an emphasis on obtaining the best person as opposed to strictly staying within salary guidelines. AML Specialist 38K-60K 42K-63K 30K-49K 30K-49K Risk Lateral experience in specialist areas (Basel, Solvency, ICAPP, MifID) is still highly desirable to companies especially if they are centralising the compliance function Chief Risk Officer 122K-170K 135K-170K 80K-140K 80K-140KAbrivia Abrivia | Compliance & Risk within a single approved person. Senior Risk manager 84K-105K 90K-110K 60K-90K 60K-90K Expectation for 2012 Operational Risk 70K-80K 70K-85K 50K-70K 50K-70K Manager While there is some argument that Compliance and Risk recruitment will peak in Risk Manager (5-6 Years) 65K-75K 65K-80K 48K-70K 48K-70K 2012 as a result of new codes and regulations towards the end of 2011, the indica- tion from clients and professionals is that the long term health of the industry is Risk Analyst 40K-50K 40K-55K 30K-42K 30K-42K good. Whilst there may be some levelling off in the overall level of recruitment - we envisage a consistant and healthy base level of recruitment to continue well into Risk Underwriter 35K-50K 35K-55K 28K-45K 28K-45K next year. An issue we expect to become more prevalent in 2012 surrounds basic qualification and competency for compliance professionals. A greater focus on academic criteria and overall fitness will likely impact the selection process and in some instances the requirement for pre-approval is likely to be a difficult hurdle to overcome. Overall we expect a busy 2012 with similar or greater numbers of new roles created as against 2011. In line with this, we expect the selection process to be more dif- ficult to navigate for candidates.

  15. 15. 2011 in Review 2011 showed limited increases in vacancy numbers, however, on a positive note Human Resources 2012 the stabilisation of the HR job market experienced in late 2010 did continue with a Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey noticeable reduction in the number of redundancies in the profession. As a result, HR Generalist € € € € we saw a decline in the number of candidates available in the market to take up contract roles in comparison to the high number of HR job seekers readily available HR Director 80K-130K 80K-130K 80K-110K 80K-110K for contract roles in 2009/2010. HR Manager 55K-80K 60K-80K 55K-70K 55K-70K We also noticed an improvement in overall market confidence which led to the HR Business Partner 50K-70K 55K-75K 50K-65K 50K-65K availability of more HR roles on a permanent basis, as opposed to fixed term contracts, and in turn some more natural movement of permanently employed HR HR Generalist 40K-55K 45K-55K 40K-50K 40K-50K professionals moving to other permanent roles for career progression. HR Officer 30K-38K 30K-40K 30K-35K 30K-38K A significant HR skill in demand in 2011 was Compensation & Benefits/Reward with a number of senior level professionals in this field moving to take on new roles. This HR Admin 22K-27K 23K-28K 22K-26K 22K-27K demand led to a slight increase in salaries for these specialists.

Specialist 40K-55K 40K-60K 40K-50K 40K-55K With many HR graduates unable to secure a role, it leaves them faced with the tough reality of securing a role outside their chosen field of study. This has, how- Administrator 28K-33K 30K-35K 27K-32K 30K-35K ever, led to a lack of candidates at the 2-3 years’ experience level.

L&D Head of L&D 70K-100K 75K-105K 70K-95K 70K-95K For the generalist HR market, we expect competition for premium roles to continue in 2012.

  17. 17. 2011 in Review The Insurance Industry has been less affected by the type of fundamental trans- Insurance & Actuarial 2012 formations which have changed the face of other sectors. Whilst the volume of Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey new roles is at a three year high, redundancies and salary reductions still remain General € € € € prevalent. On a more positive note, the insurance recruitment industry has seen a healthy growth in 2011. Whilst the industry has a long way to go to reach the Operations Manager 80K-115K 80K-115K 75K-110K 80K-115K heights of 2007, I feel it is also important to note that more technical roles have seen a notable increase in recruitment and remuneration.

  22. 22. 2011 in Review Certain sectors of the legal market improved during 2011 with a higher number Legal 2012 of firms actively recruiting into several practice sectors. This contrasts to the legal Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey market in general which is still experiencing generally lower salaries for fee earners Private Practice € € € € despite performance expectations still being high. Overall in 2011 we witnessed a significant increase in the number of new practice positions created, and unlike Salary Partner 95K – 165K 97K – 165K 80K – 105K 80K – 105K 2010 – many of these positions were at more junior levels.

A number of senior industry appoint- 3PQE + 44K – 67K 58K – 70K 40K – 53K 40K – 55K ments were made this year which is highlighted by an increase in the upper band of 1 – 2PQE 38K – 60K 42K – 63K 30K – 49K 30K – 49K remuneration for positions like Head of Legal / General Counsel.

This was notable Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012Salary Survey within large organisations in the Insurance, Financial and Banking industries, as the Office Support € € € € practice of taking in temporary staff to cover holidays and long term sick leave re- turned to the market place. This coupled with temporary staff hired to cover project Executive Assistant 35K – 55K 35K – 55K 33K – 35K 33K – 35K driven requirements accounted for the increase in temporary staff being employed.

Clients will not only seek to hire candidates with the right attributes but will also look for people with strong commercial acumen who can add value to the business now and at a future date. There will be a slight increase in permanent hires due to the new agency directive that was introduced during 2011, however, on the reverse this may have a nega- tive effect on the temporary market.
