Average wage for beauty industry workers revealed as £61,300
The latest Salary Survey on the Cosmetic & Personal Care Industry covering 2018-19 from Arthur Edward Global Cosmetic Recruitment revealed that those in the beauty industry are paid over twice the average UK salary of £28,677.
While salaries vary widely, ranging from under £20,000 up to £300,000 per annum, most salaries fall within the range of £30,000 - £75,000.
The most lucrative position within the industry is in operations, over 50% of those earning £150,000 - £300,000 can be found to be in senior managerial roles in contrast to the scientific sector which holds some of the lowest earning industry workers.
The report also revealed that although the cosmetic industry is predominantly female, women are in a lesser number of the most senior roles which involve directors, boards and owners hence resulting in a gaping gender gap, with the Body Shop reporting a 43.4% gender gap in favour of men and L'oreal UK 36.5% in favour of men.
Due to the uncertainty of Brexit there is also a considerable demand for skilled and experienced staff as positions in the UK have lost their appeal to European candidates who are reluctant to commit to UK based roles. Companies are developing at a slower rate, as job creation rates have dropped amidst companies preparing for what Brexit will mean for them. Many more respondents than in previous years have specified they are unsettled or at risk of redundancy while others are pushed to cover vacant roles that have been unfulfilled.
