What are the best and worst publishing jobs for women?
For International Women’s Day 2019 we thought we’d take a look at the results from the last bookcareers.com Salary Survey and see what are the best and worst publishing jobs for women in the pay stakes – the jobs where women got paid on average more than men or less than them.
84.6% of respondents to the survey were female.
|Job Title||Average||Male||Female||% F v M|
|Key Accounts Manager||£32,500||£26,000||£33,150||21.6%|
|Associate Literary Agent / Assistant Literary Agent||£25,000||£23,250||£26,167||11.1%|
On the other side of the coin, these are the 10 worst jobs for women in the pay stakes – where women got paid on average less than men. It seems that once women get promoted to a senior or director level, with the exception of Publishing Director, they come off far worse in the pay stakes and they are often not paid on a par with their male colleagues.
|Job Title||Average||Male||Female||F v M%|
|International Sales Manager||£36,080||£46,000||£33,600||-36.9%|
