About this presentation

Since 1919, the biennial Pay and Reward survey has helped chemical scientists understand their worth in the job market, make informed decisions about their career and compare the pay and rewards of different sectors and roles. The comprehensive report supports both individuals and employers when negotiating or benchmarking salaries, understanding the value of further qualifications, the impact of career breaks, individual career motivators and skills needs across sectors and career stages.
