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.

The town of Tamworth is the largest town in Staffordshire, although the largest settlement is the city of Stoke-on-Trent. Due to its south-eastern location, however, the town probably has more of an affiliation with Birmingham; Tamworth is just 12 miles (20 km) from the centre of Birmingham, and 6 miles (10 km) from Sutton Coldfield. The M42 passes to the east, connecting Birmingham with the M1, and to the west the M6 toll road heads north and south.
The town has a rich history, and was once larger than Birmingham; indeed it was even the capital of Mercia under Kind Offa in the 9th century. It was raided and destroyed by the Danes and re-founded by Aethelflaed, daughter of Alfred the Great. There was probably a Saxon fort in the town, but it is thought that Tamworth Castle was built on its grounds; the castle still stands to this day. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the town became industrialised, mainly thanks to the abundant coal nearby. Canals and railways came, and engineering, brick and tile making and the textile industries grew up. In latter years, Tamworth was the home of the Reliant factory, famous for its Robin and Scimitar cars; the factory no longer exists, however.
Tamworth, with its links to both Birmingham and Staffordshire, and thanks to its ideal location in the midlands, is a perfect place to find Compensation & Benefits Manager positions, and they become available reasonably frequently here and in its surrounding area.
