Our 2017 Digital Leaders Remuneration Guide

Welcome to our 2017 Remuneration Guide.

The purpose of this report is to once again provide an up-to-date benchmark for digital executives’ financial compensation, across a range of functions, levels and company types.


Our day-to-day work sees us placing some of the world’s most senior executives in roles across the digital economy. From high-growth VC-backed scale-ups, to PE-backed companies and established digital corporates – as well as placing transformative leaders into traditional environments.

For this year’s report, we’ve pooled this candidate data and coupled this with our own insight to produce an overall guide to remuneration. For ease of comparison, the majority of salary data is UK based and all remuneration values are displayed in GBP.

It goes without saying that these findings are based on a limited dataset, and therefore caution should be exercised before drawing firm conclusions, but the overarching trends outlined in this report are borne out by our day-to-day experiences.

If there’s anything in the report that you’d like to discuss further, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
