To ask what salary...
prettyisall · 25/01/2022 18:39
I've just been having a chat with a friend about salary as he is currently on the look out for a new job, he was quite surprised when I told him my salary.
It's got me thinking, so what kind of Salary would you expect from this role?
Providing bespoke quotations to suit customers needs
Taking orders and entering onto account systems
Sending proforma invoices / taking payment
Putting together production sheets using formulas on excel for every order (always bespoke)
Answering phone and email queries
Outsourcing costs for components / ordering them when needed (this is not so often)
Taking care of all social media and website
Making Eflyers for marketing campaigns
All other basic administrative duties such as keeping spreadsheets up to date.
Location - Suffolk.
Time at Company - 15 years
Around 15 employees.

I'd say similar transferable skills to the office manager / admin person in my team so 22-24K?
Travis1 · 25/01/2022 18:45
In my current company that would probably get you about £22k if you were lucky. In a proper company around me I’d say £25-30k. I’m in Scotland

Hard to say as it depends on how specialised the work is and what packages are used and how much website work is involved - is it a basic front end user portal or does the role involve proper coding/building etc..
Who does the person report to?
Is the product basic or highly technical? Commin or quite specialised?

North - 28k?

Sounds like a slightly more varied than usual admin role, nothing that seems to need any specific skills or qualifications - maybe £17-£20K? Perhaps a bit more since you've been there 15 years, assuming you've had a payrise each year.
I imagine if you left, they'd advertise for a school leaver or fresh graduate on near minimum wage. Sounds a bit more interesting that the average admin role though.

In my industry where I am...probably 40-45k
WalkingOnSonshine · 25/01/2022 18:49
With the size of the company, probably 17-20k ballpark.
It sounds like typical administration & would get a lot of applicants if you left.

£25k-ish purely for the role, but I could imagine maybe you're on more taking into account the 15 years?

I was also thinking around £22k
gogohm · 25/01/2022 18:51
£20-30k depending on where you live
unluckyinlife · 25/01/2022 18:52
23k probably. I did similar working for a big company in London and didn't get much more than that per year.
myhousebuild · 25/01/2022 18:52
Oh sorry I answered all wrong based on U.K. wages probably 20-25k
Laska2Meryls · 25/01/2022 18:52
17-20k I reckon .. though here it would most likely be at the lower end on entry
Unmute · 25/01/2022 18:52
Around £24k since you've been there so long

BigYellowHat · 25/01/2022 18:53
Depends whether public or private. Public I’d say around £24k. Private they may push up to £35k
Boood · 25/01/2022 18:53
The sales and order processing sound quite basic, and as you’ve said small company I’d guess around £22-25k. But a social media manager at a large company would probably be on about £40k, I think.

Depends the extent of the bespoke quotations.
If its put a margin on a cost and put in a pretty word document or is it build a bespoke commercial model from scratch and present the P&L to the leadership team.
The former about £25k, the latter about £40k.
