In 2021, we launched the first edition of the salary benchmark report Amsterdam, this was well received by scaleups and talent. Since then, we’ve launched reports about Berlin and Munich, with many more cities to follow.
The now-published second Amsterdam edition offers the opportunity to compare salary trends in the Amsterdam region with those in 2021 and in other major European tech hubs. And it’s fair to say, a lot has changed. Two issues in particular:
High demand for Sales and HR talent
Salaries at scale-ups increased across the board in 2022 compared to 2021, by an average of 4.6%. Interestingly, in addition to tech talent, demand for Sales Development Representatives and Account Executives also increased sharply, resulting in a salary increase for these positions of 11.8% on average. The same trend can be seen for HR and Talent Acquisition roles, with an increase in salary of 7% on average.
Salaries for junior and medior roles are increasing relative faster than for senior roles
The salaries for Junior- and Medior roles are rising relatively faster than their Senior counterparts, especially in Sales and Talent Acquisition. Salaries for SDR’s have increased by 11.5% for Junior positions and 17.75% for Medior positions. While salaries for Talent Business Partners have increased by 9.1% for Junior positions and 6.14% for Medior positions. This trend may be explained by the vast growth of the
ecosystem and severe shortage of qualified (senior) talent available,
which has forced businesses to invest in young professionals.
