No matter how fulfilling a job is or how well regarded the company is, the truth is that people go there to earn a living. In competitive sectors, compensation is perhaps the number one factor in securing the very best employees. That’s why many companies have dedicated compensation managers. Their job is to assess the true value of a position to the company, and to weigh this up against the skill sets of the personnel performing the task. It’s a delicate job, calculating salaries that retain and attract the best while remaining competitive and profitable, but get it right and the compensation manager can become a highly valuable member of the team.
Benefits are also a key factor in attracting great employees. This is also part of the C&B manager’s remit, creating complete packages that help to bring in top talent, to give them attractive packages and to ensure compensation and benefits are reviewed regularly to ensure a satisfied team.
Experience in compensation and benefits management will be of great help, as the task is a very skilled one, requiring balance and judgement. A knowledge of what motivates employees in the sector is useful, so experience in the industry will be of benefit.
The task requires some complex mathematical skills to ensure that employees and their roles are given exact valuations, but it’s not just about the amount of money a person is personally bringing into the company; it is also about factoring in things such as competitor salaries and benefits, plus the costs of high staff turnover. Reporting to the board is a regular part of the job, as your decisions need to go through financial scrutiny. You will need the strength of character to argue your case when directors are questioning your assessments or calculations.

Middlesbrough is one of several industrial powerhouses that served England’s North Sea coast during the Industrial Revolution and the age of empire, along with Hull, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Sunderland, Hartlepool and Grimsby. It is a town of over 140,000 population which has had to perform a degree of reinvention in the post-war period as the docks fell into disuse, but the chemical plant at nearby Wilton and the steelworks continue to be strong employers to this day.
To the west of the city is Stockton-on-Tees, which was one end of the famous Stockton and Darlington Railway, the first public railway in the world. The railway had a massive effect on Middlesbrough’s economy when it was opened in 1825. The city is still well connected, with good road and rail links and Teesside Airport serving domestic and short-haul needs. With this rich mix of industries and a large population to cater for, Compensation & Benefits Manager vacancies often emerge in Middlesbrough.
The city has a long list of notable people who hail from its street or its nearby area. A few famous names include football legends Brian Clough and Don Revie, rugby union star Rory Underwood, conjuror Paul Daniels, comedian Bob Mortimer (of Vic and Bob fame), guitarist Chris Rea and Corrie actors Thelma “Mavis Riley” Barlow and Chris “Brian Tilsley” Quinten, to name but a few. There must be something in the water!
