first_img Tagged with: Recruitment / people Research / statistics Scotland Initial results from a survey of Scottish fundraisers indicate that charities are prepared to invest in targeting corporate donors. The Scottish Fundraising Salary Survey, conducted by Bruce Tait Associates, has already found that, while most Scottish fundraising salaries have remained more or less static, there has been a marked increase in amounts paid to corporate fundraisers.The 2011 Survey, now in its third year, compared the salaries, packages and motivation of over 120 Scottish fundraisers. The full results will be published in November, but Managing Director Bruce Tait will present and discuss a preview of the findings at a gathering of fundraisers and HR professionals to be held on 3 October in Stirling.Tait said: “This year’s survey was the most extensive yet and provides a real insight into how to recruit, train and retain Scottish fundraisers. By comparing the figures to the previous years, we can get a real insight not only into how fundraisers work, but also how Scottish charities are deploying their resources in response to difficult fundraising times.“For example, very few are reducing their fundraising operations – the vast majority are scaling up to meet the shortfalls in funding from other areas. We’re also noticing significantly increased salary levels being offered to corporate fundraisers, presumably to entice people leaving the private sector”.www.brucetaitassociates.com  26 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
