Many factors beyond an individual’s technical skill set and background can influence salary. Reviewing salaries across Australia – an organisations size, location and industry can all influence salary.
Broadly, the highest paying positions across all accounting job types are in Sydney and Melbourne working for the large financial services, insurance, telecommunications and IT companies. In contrast the lowest paying positions are in locations such as Tasmania and the Northern Territory or in industries such as advertising, travel, entertainment, hospitality and manufacturing.
There is constant tension between employees striving to be paid appropriately and organisations being focused on cost control and peer relativities within an organisation. At ThompsonCook we understand this challenging balance.
While the economy across Australia remains flat, most people will change jobs for a salary increase of less than 10%.
