State of the profession poll closed
IEMA's annual survey of members' pay, benefits and experience closed on 11 January.
The poll has been carried out every year since 2005 and provides a comprehensive insight into the state of the environment profession.
Respondents from all IEMA membership grades were asked to provide details about their qualifications, length of professional experience, earnings and bonuses, changes to circumstances, responsibilities and job satisfaction levels.
The high level of responses means that the data IEMA has collected can be considered a good representation of the entire profession.
IEMA would like to thank everyone who took the time to participate. It will use the information provided by members to inform businesses, recruiters and the media about the value of the profession throughout this year and beyond.
Analysis of the results is ongoing and a special pay and benefits report based on the findings will be published with the March issue of the environmentalist. The findings will also be available at environmentalistonline.com.
