Whilst there are some subtle regional differences, salaries have generally kept pace with inflation although we are noticing larger increases at the entry/operative level, as demand starts to outstrip supply. The salaries shown are basic salary levels only - we have not included shift allowances, bonuses or any other additional remuneration as part of the calculations. Oxfordshire & Warwickshire have both played host to several new e-commerce businesses that have recently moved their distribution centres to the area. The creation of over 500 new operative-level positions has not only created staff shortages and increased wages, but also demonstrated that the retail supply chain is going through rapid transformation. We have also noticed that there has been further demand for purchasing specialists and the number of vacancies available across the region has increased throughout 2018. more on next page 10
