Pay Range for Workflow Administrator


I am a WorkFlow Admin for a large oil company and when I do my research for pay ranges in this position I do not come up with many results. I am the only Workflow admin as I am replacing several during a split of a joint venture. I will be the only Admin remaining resulting in the bulk of responsibilites falling on me. I would really appreciate some assistance on this so that when it comes to renegotiating my salary I know where to start.

    Difficult question to generalise on, as it's a fairly broad range of possible responsibilities.

    At the techie end of the scale you have the design and development, which some admins do. In the middle you have the WF admin duties. At the other end you could also be fairly involved in the business side of things and actively filling a bit of a business analyst type of role and redesigning WF-supported business processes.

    All WF admins do the middle bit, some get involved in either of both of the other sides. There was a survey a few years ago that showed a fairly broad distribution across the spectrum. That's probably why it's difficult to find a benchmark rate.

    Your best bet is to try to find an equivalent setup in terms of expertise and responsibility as yours. If it's more techie look at rates for e.g. portal admins or security, or a specialist ABAP developer. These days many see WF as a specialist add-on skill just like Web Dynpro. If you're more on the process management side then look at rates for a functional consultant or business analyst with techie skills.

    If it's just straightforward day to day WF admin & monitoring, then perhaps look at the rates for other technology admins (e.g. Middleware specialists or senior/specialist support staff).

    Niche skills and expert knowledge is a good bargaining point, as is the fact that it's a multiskilled role spanning techie and business areas, not to mention the HR component.

    Good luck!

    Look at the skills required to do your job and then search for positions in your country where these skills are needed and what their pay grade is.Like I said in Coffee Corner in my experience workflow admin is usually part of someones job and the jobs vary from basis to developers to business area.

    Kind regards, Rob Dielemans
