Hospitality sector leads UK in pay rises with wages up over 10% in 2017

The hospitality industry led the way in pay rises last year in regards to jobs advertised online, with salaries increasing by 10.4% from 2016, according to data from CV- Library.

The lift in average salaries in the sector was greater than in any other, with automotive (10.2%) and agriculture (9.5%) second and third best.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, said: “These industries are central to the UK economy’s success and it’s clear that more competition for talent has driven many employers to push up their pay packets in 2017.

“Interestingly, some of these industries are ones that could be struggling because of a lack of EU workers – agriculture and hospitality for example are heavily reliant on this labour, which could explain why higher pay is being offered.”
