Exclusive pay and labour market data and analysis


ECC members have exclusive access to labour market intelligence, essential in a changing environment. This services gives you:

  • access to an experienced team of experts who can provide advice on individual queries at short notice via the help desk facility
  • convenient and easy access to a vast range of data and information about jobs and roles within the public, private and HE/FE sectors
  • access to data gathered exclusively from ECC consortium member organisations
  • practical analysis and high quality robust data to justify your pay strategy, such as the payment of premiums where necessary to address labour market issues
  • information to support decisions about recruitment and retention strategies
  • the opportunity to influence the roles covered: members take an active part in deciding which role groups are surveyed, and every member is invited to contribute to the dataset
  • a long-established service delivered in partnership with Capita, the UK's leading provider of business process management and integrated professional support service solutions.


Members receive two free reports a year. Each report covers:

  • Role groups at entry, practitioner and senior levels (a total of 22 roles per report)
  • Information on the pay rates provided by ECC's members and other major employers
  • The key features of the labour market and actions being taken to address issues.

We ask that members complete the surveys, which are distributed in October and March each year.

The reports are backed by extensive support:

  • Help desk facility. This enables members to request specially tailored reports on an individual role or group of roles. Members are entitled to 3 hours of specialist helpdesk time, including up to 6 bespoke labour market report requests. The help desk can be contacted on 0142 381 8700.
  • Website. The website provides access to the tailored reports and other information supplied by Capita Surveys and Research Unit, including each survey report and an annual compendium. There are more than 20 ECC reports now available.


Members can also access dedicated pages on the Capita website www.capitasurveys.co.uk to view and download anonymised helpdesk resources as well as accessing previous reports.  Each member is given a secure username and password.  Please e-mail contactus@ecc.ac.uk for details.
