Survey shows inflation-busting rises for some but growing proportion looking to jump ship

Some architects have enjoyed double-digit pay rises over the past 12 months, but those left out in the cold are increasingly seeking out out new jobs, according to a new salary survey.

Frame Recruitment’s annual crunch of pay and sentiment among UK architects and interior designers found a drop in the proportion of respondents stating they had a pay rise in the past year.

Only 40% said “yes” when they were asked if their pay had gone up during 2018 – a marked decline on 2017’s 60%, the 56% recorded in 2016 and 2015’s 63%.
