Understanding the reward lanscape for Marine Surveyors in the UK

The Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) is an Executive Agency of the Department for Transport (DfT). The MCA is responsible throughout the UK for implementing and developing the UK Government’s maritime safety and environmental protection policy. This includes co-ordinating Search and Rescue (SAR) at sea through Her Majesty’s Coastguard 24 hours a day, and checking that ships meet UK and international safety rules. The MCA work to prevent the loss of lives at the coast and at sea, to ensure that ships and people are safe, and to prevent coastal pollution. 

In 2015, to inform the Survey & Inspection regime Transformation Programme, the MCA commissioned a bespoke study which examined the external pay landscape for Marine Surveyors in the UK. In addition, the study also looked at wider benefits, the nature of the work completed, and the working patterns associated with the roles in the external market. This work was replicated in 2019 to evaluate any movement in the external market. The MCA has appointed Journey4 to repeat this work and provide a robust basis for future positioning and decision making.

Stuart Pearce, Journey4 Director commented; “We are delighted to be working with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency on this benchmarking project. The outputs of this project will provide key information and data to inform HR strategies and policies, aimed to improve attraction and retention of key roles within the organisation.”
