Annual salary survey

The Maritime HR Association's major activity is the annual salary survey. It is the biggest, and possibly the only, survey of its kind in the shipping industry.

The Association is comprised of close to 100 companies (and growing) from all around the world.

Many of these companies have employees in a number of different countries and, as the map shows, there's a presence in a total of 119 countries across every continent (except Antarctica!).

The survey provides members with detailed salary, allowance and bonus data for shore-based shipping-specific jobs in a range of locations and regions.

We report an extensive number of jobs across operations, commercial, technical and marine, safety and quality, crewing, shipbroking, newbuildings, purchasing and bunkering and corporate departments.

As the membership continues to grow, the number of countries we can report is increasing. When an individual country report is not available, data will be included in a regional report.

In 2015, members provided salary data for the following locations*:

*In order to comply with anti-trust regulations, we can only report data for a location where there are a minimum of five companies participating.
