Nevertheless, substantial numbers of seafarers and some shore staff have seen substantial reductions in pay over the last 12 months. The mixed picture emerges from a survey based on responses from 4,000 shipping employees working in all main shipping centres, as well as at sea. In general, seniority was found to be a crucial variant, with those in the higher positions more likely to have enjoyed an inflation-plus settlement. The main conclusion is that 56% of shore staff and 50% of seafarer respondents reported a salary gain of 5% or more during the last year. However, set against this, 10% of shore-based professionals and 30% of seafarers said that their salaries had actually been cut in this period. Salaries were static for 17% of shore staff and 12% of seafarers. In terms of average salaries ashore, chartering directors are at the top of the tree, averaging an annual basic of $227,140 and a bonus of 20%. That is some way ahead of the second-ranking job title, with fleet/technical managers pulling down $123,518 and a bonus of 16%. Faststream highlights the closeness in remuneration between ship operators, on $82,074, and shipbrokers, on $81,666. “While gauging the average shipbroker’s salary is of course very difficult, as it takes in such a wide range of earnings and markets, the fact is that the role of the ship operator has become increasingly highly regarded,” the report notes. “Good ship operators can make the difference between commercial success and failure and are in demand not only within shipping companies, but also commodity houses and banks.” Consultants can also earn well if they are equally comfortable in a boiler suit and a business suit and can explain engineering issues to a non- technical audience. In geographical terms, the highest paid positions are in the US, where the pool of candidates for jobs such as superintendent are limited and tough visa requirements make it harder to bring in overseas talent. Asia-based ship operators and shipbrokers are 20% better paid than their European counterparts. In general, Middle East positions pay the worst within each job category. However, salaries for ex-pats are often tax free and housing costs are provided by the employer. Local employees will not as a rule enjoy such terms and conditions. While benefit packages offered by ship management companies have caught up with those on offer from shipowners, shipowners still have the edge in terms of perks such as paid lunch, gym membership and optional holiday credits. Average salaries for master mariners tend to be highest for those working on passenger vessels, and are typically at around $153,000. Next in the league table are masters on offshore vessels ($128,247), followed by those serving on tankers ($115,613) and dry ships ($110,981). But the good news is that over a 20- year working career at sea, an officer can expect to see his or her salary double in real terms. Faststream chief executive Mark Charman said: “Even though the shipping industry is being buffeted by poor vessel earnings, rising costs and ever more stringent regulations, salaries continue to rise. “The sector suffers from a skill shortage and the pool of highly qualified people continues to shrink. This is both the legacy of a lack of training in the 1980s during the previous downturn and the often perceived low status of jobs in the shipping industry.” A spokesman for Nautilus International said that the Anglo- Dutch officers’ union had found the findings interesting, and added that officers in skill shortage areas have often been able to command double- digit pay hikes. However, the tendency towards pay cuts did not appear to be as pronounced among unionised officers covered by collective bargaining agreements, he said. n But pay for many seafarers and shore staff has been cut DAVID OSLER Fleet/Technical Manager AVERAGE SALARY AND BONUS BY JOB TITLE Chartering Director Chartering Manager Marine Consultant Charterer Superintendent (Technical) Marine Surveyor Superintendent (Marine) Ship Operator Shipbroker (Chartering) Fleet Personnel Manager $227,140 $123,518 $110,510 $100,743 $100,493 $96,456 $89,705 $88,663 $82,074 $81,666 $59,321 Average salary Average bonus Source: Faststream Recruitment Group 20% 16% 18% 7% 13% 12% 7% 10% 11% 26% 8% “Even though the shipping industry is being buffeted by poor vessel earnings, rising costs and ever more stringent regulations, salaries continue to rise.The sector suffers from a skill shortage and the pool of highly qualified people continues to shrink” Mark Charman, Faststream chief executive COMMERCIAL Heavy Lift Charterer Gulf Coast $120-150K DOE Oil Charterer/Broker NE United States To $150K DOE Dry Bulk Charterer NE United States To $145K DOE Oil Charterer Gulf Coast DOE Chemical Broker/Trader Various Locations DOE TECHNICAL VP Safety GOM $150K+ DOE Director of Operations Bulkers Canada To $160K DOE Port Engineer Dredges Pacific Coast $105K Cargo Superintendent Heavy Lift GOM $140K HSE Analyst Junior GOM To $80K Port Manager - Structure TX To $90K MARINE Principal Offshore Engineer Various US Locations DOE Offshore Engineers Various US Locations $ 90-125K DOE Naval Architect Offshore Project Mgr TX $150-170K DOE Sales Manager Marine Engineer OEM Gulf Coast DOE SEAGOING Chief Engineer Unlimited DP GOM $950/day Chief Engineer Long Line Exp.
