2021 KSA Salary Guide

Cooper Fitch has been researching compensation for over twenty years, providing organisations across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with insight on how to create competitive compensation and benefits packages. Despite the significant economic and trading challenges in 2020 across the GCC and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we are proceeding with our annual salary guide for 2021.


We are currently working with our clients and partners in Saudi to understand their plans for salaries for 2021. Cooper Fitch will present 2021 Salary guides for Saudi by mid to the end of December, this year we aim to include salary and bonus data from over 500 clients in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to understand in a meaningful way what will happen with compensation.


We provide this information exclusively for organisations as a tool for competitive compensation and benefits benchmarking and in support of our consultation services which help outline the search parameters of any assignment brief. Our unique position enables Cooper Fitch to track the latest insights and trends in salary ranges.

We collate our data via several sources; successful assignments our firm have competed, undergoing appointments, daily interaction with hiring managers and mid to senior-level executives across the region.


Where our guides make a note of salary increases within the area, this is exclusively associated with recruits versus internal promotions. Our research covers the common industry areas and functions in which we regularly recruit and consult in; however, we do offer bespoke compensation and benefits benchmarking services targeted to your strategic organisational objectives and competitor positioning analysis. Contact us to find out more about bespoke research projects tailored to your needs.
