“RECRUITMENT STILL BIGGEST HEADACHE FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY” – REPORT

By CBR Staff Writer

Recruitment is still one of the biggest problems plaguing the telecommunications industry according to a report published by the UK Telecommunications Managers Association and PA Management Consultants. Nearly 40% of companies surveyed had a change of communications management over the past year with senior management positions proving the most difficult to fill. The highest salary dished out was UKP120,000 plus a company Porsche although communications managers could expect their salaries to accelerate the fastest at 15% to an average UKP40,000. Most companies sought replacements from external sources. High turnover, lengthening vacancy lists and an overall skills shortage were cited as contributing factors which are pushing up telecoms salaries quicker than any other sector in the information technology industry. The good news, perhaps, is that the post of communications managers is now widespread: five years ago, DP managers tended to be expected to do it in their spare time.
