Salaries by level of membership

Members who take the step to become an associate can expect to earn a little more, at a median of £38,000 a year. There is a bigger pay premium associated with becoming a Full member, which requires both a written submission and interview. Members at this level can expect to earn a median of £45,000, a full £10,000 above that for affiliates. The mean annual salary at this professional level is £52,854, highlighting that the earnings potential for some practitioners who have achieved full member status can be much higher.
Becoming a fellow of the Institute signifies a practitioner reaching what IEMA describes as “the pinnacle of professional recognition”. As leaders in their field, Fellows can expect to earn a median salary of £82,500 a year. The significant differential between Full members and Fellows reflects this leadership role.
