Estimate Your Salary

Although it can be difficult to get a precise salary prediction unless you are aiming for a particular role, there are ways to begin creating a clear picture of what you can achieve.

Here are 3 tips for your research:

  • 1. Ask Around

    If you intend to stay within your current organisation, enquire about black belt level roles available or how this progression in knowledge and certification may impact your current salary and benefits.

  • 2. Study Your Sector

    Spend a little time researching jobs available on recruitment sites in your sector. You can gain insights into the type of role requirements you can expect and learn a little more about the salaries offered.

  • 3. Explore Role Titles

    As you research, bear in mind that the title “black belt” may not always be used. Terms like “continuous improvement manager” or “senior process manager” may be interchanged here.
