51% of Dynamics professionals reported salary increases of up to 10%, and 6% reported a 30% increase- a new salary survey
Being able to get the most out of the Dynamics platform has become business-critical in light of the difficulties the last couple of years have so far presented. A new salary survey shows that many Dynamics professionals are getting better at advancing their careers. As a result, the Reecruit team believes that the number of Microsoft Dynamics-certified professionals will increase in the coming year and beyond.
The IT staffing and recruitment company, Nigel Frank International, just put out the results of its 12th annual Microsoft Dynamics Salary Survey [Source: Nigel Frank]. This survey looks at employment and salary trends among Dynamics professionals.
51 percent of respondents who looked back over the previous two years reported salary increases of up to 10 percent, while 6 percent reported pay increases of up to 30 percent.
The most recent survey shows that up to 43% of partner clients are most interested in hiring people with skills in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, Dynamics CRM, D365 Business Central, and D365 Sales. As complementary skills, Power BI, Power Apps, and Azure are closely related.
Participants reported that professionals still value professional certifications. As of 2020, some of the most popular certifications are in Business Apps, D365 for Sales Functional Consultant Associate, D365 Customer Service Functional Consultant Associate, Cloud, and Data.
Many Dynamics professionals still struggle with maintaining and advancing their skill sets. 40% of respondents said they were dissatisfied with their current levels of training and development, and 30% said they were thinking about leaving their jobs because they were looking for new challenges.
The fact that up to 90% of permanent employees report working outside of their regular hours may be one of the few drawbacks to the demand for Dynamics skills and a sign of understaffing. In the survey, 41% of participants work in Europe, compared to 34% in the US, 5% in Australia and New Zealand, and only 20% in the rest of the world.
Even though becoming an independent consultant offers the potential for higher earnings and flexibility, the report points out that, overall, only 23% of Dynamics professionals report ever switching to freelance or contract roles. The vast majority of Dynamics professionals who were surveyed and are now out of work had permanent jobs before they lost their jobs. The effects of the pandemic may make it easier for Dynamics professionals, including permanent employees, to work from home in the future.
