The role itself

A compensation analyst improves the internal reward policy of a organisation.

Initially they investigate existing employee pay grades, before reporting on improvements they feel would make the scheme more competitive.

To be successful in the role the right candidate must be confident implementing their schemes effectively with the goal of moving the business forward.

They must:

  • Examine market and salary trends
  • Liaise with management staff on relevant compensation issues
  • Develop and implementing competitive pay and reward schemes

Finally, the right candidate must be a strong communicator as they need to address current issues before advising colleagues and stakeholders on their policies.

The Required experience

They will have the following skills and experience:

  • Thorough knowledge of current government policy
  • Excellent organisational and time management
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Knowledge of relevant computer systems

Candidates will be educated to degree level, and it is also worth seeking those accredited as a Certified Compensation Professional (CPP) as this confirms their dedication to their field.

Strong candidates typically have experience in a similar role such as a reward or recognition position, or compensation specialist, where they created well thought-out compensation strategies.
