Ecommerce salaries: What do junior level professionals receive?

Oct 2, 2018 10:31:26 AM

What is the average ecommerce salary for junior professionals in the industry? Following on from our look at senior ecommerce professionals, we thought we’d use our 2018 ecommerce salary survey & insights report to look at those starting their careers.

As we already know, ecommerce salaries are on the rise – 68% saw their salary increase in the last 12 months. However, are junior employees getting what they deserve? Is training and development part of the overall package?

Average ecommerce salaries for junior employees

The average ecommerce salary for professionals aged 25 and under in 2018 is £30,089! This is a 3.7% increase from 2017, where the average was £28,980. It’s great to see a nice little jump in salary for junior professionals – if they are proving themselves, why shouldn’t they see a boost in their pay packet, regardless of job title?

As we did before, we will now look at the averages salaries across the ecommerce specialisms we work on. For this #PandaPounds post, we will be looking at assistant to executive level only.
