Salary statistics for technical and administrative staff
To get an idea of where you are in terms of salary in relation to employees with the same position, we show here statistics from the university's statistical tool Kuben in August 2023.
Who are you compared to?
At Lund University, the main rule is that the area of negotiation, i.e. the group of employees you are compared with, is different depending on the type of position you have.
This aims to increase mobility between faculties by reducing thresholds and thus promoting career opportunities. The salary statistics below are thus based on the job title of the entire university. However, it still looks very different at the faculties in certain positions. Therefore, the statistics below are not always accurate for certain groups from a wage policy perspective. We work with the employer to change the structural problems that exist within the university.
Some job titles are difficult to obtain reliable statistics on. This may, for example, be because certain tasks depend on where you are at the university. Examples of this are project managers and research engineers. For such positions, it may be worth looking at the statistics for your own faculty. Even a low number of employees with the same job title can make it difficult to draw too large conclusions about the statistics.
The salary at the university is individual and the salaries are differentiated, which means that the assessment of your performance will affect what salary you have.
If you want to see what the average salary looks like within a specific faculty or activity, then you can choose your own parameters in Lund University's statistical tool Kuben (you must be on campus or use VPN). You select Human resources and then Salary situation per position.
If you want to see how salaries at LU are in relation to the rest of Sweden, you can use Saco Lönesök. You choose the association you are a member of and log in through them.
Things to consider when reading the statistics
Where you are in your career affects where in the statistics you should be. If you're brand new, you might be somewhere between the 10% percentile and the average salary. If you are at the end of your career, you should perhaps be a bit above average, perhaps closer to the 90% percentile. If you have a special area of responsibility within your position without being a manager, you should also be higher.
