Toronto, ON – Salaries for supply chain professionals working in manufacturing dropped in 2011. In 2010, those professionals earned $83,500, while this year saw them take home $75,400-a difference of $8,100 or 9.7%.
Organizations with 5,000 or more workers saw supply chain salaries drop from $94,100 in 2010 to $93,800 in 2011, down 0.3%. Also experiencing a drop were companies with 250 to 499 employees, with salaries falling 2.5% from $80,700 in 2010 to $78,700 this year.
These are some of the results from the 2011supply chain salary survey which, for the fourth year in a row, Purchasingb2b and M&D magazines (sister publications to Machinery & Equipment MRO) have produced in partnership with the Purchasing Management Association of Canada (PMAC). The survey questionnaire – fielded this summer to PMAC members and supply chain professionals who subscribe to Purchasingb2b and MM&D – drew 1,567 responses.
Those working on a professional SCMP designation saw their salary jump 3.0% from $67,200 on average in 2010 to $69,200 this year. When asked about the importance of a professional designation, 77% of PMAC member respondents said it was important to get ahead in their jobs. For non-PMAC members, 62% said it was important.
PMAC members also took a more positive view of the availability of supply chain jobs. In total, 71% said there were more jobs in supply chain than five years ago (with 23% saying much more). That’s compared to non-PMAC members, 56% of which saw more jobs than five years ago.
