    All our Salary Surveys are updated annually to ensure that our members get up-to-date information regarding their salary expectations. We use highly reliable data from several sources to be able to publish our salary surveys. Additionally, the salary survey cannot measure the amount of non-monetary rewards and benefits that Executive Assistants receive. Therefore, Executive Assistants should consider these non-monetary rewards and benefits when considering a future role. Many countries showed that the Executive Assistant Pay Range was quite large. High-paying executive assistant jobs were often found in specific industries, and in some countries, they were found in only some cities.

    Executive Assistant Salary Range

    Salary comparison shows that Executive Assistants can earn more in certain cities and countries. However, there are specific differences to consider. Some countries have greater expectations of discretionary cash bonuses. This aspect is unpredictable, so we have not included this part of the Executive Assistants’ packages. If the cash rewards are highly likely to be paid, we have added them as a side note. 

    Perhaps the most critical measure is quality of life. Comparing cities or countries, please consider the cost of living and disposable income. 

    Many Executive Assistants in high-paying locations have also complained that they have little savings due to high costs in the area where they are based. 

    Work-Life Balance

    Another element to consider is the level of work-life balance and the possibility of remote or flexible working; please consider this in your career moves.

    I found the entire course worked well. The order in which the topics were presented, and the emphasis on the EA role and how it can be used most effectively. The course was guided by the practicalities of the role and included real life examples from both trainer and participants.  I was in awe of the ladies on the course and the positions they hold. I learn that the role is more management/partnership oriented than I had believed. Delighted to know that there are so many more options available for me to pursue.

    Our tutor was excellent and fully engaged with each individual, I learnt why looking at the bigger picture and trying to partner my manager where possible was important.
