Salary guides

These figures were produced by the CILIP Member Services team in February 2014.

The recommended salaries quoted are guideline figures, and do not represent any particular salary scale or the sums paid by any particular institution.

Posts in some areas may be graded to recognise local labour market conditions. However, CILIP recommends that all posts should be graded according to the level of responsibility they bear and the level of qualification, skill and experience required.

The salary bands do not take into account special allowances such as London Weighting or other benefits. They are worked out on a 35 hour week, full time post.

In addition to these guides, the CILIP School Libraries Group have produced their own set of salary guides. They can be found here, in the documents at the bottom of the page.

Sue Hill TFPL have also released salary surveys.
