Every year, we conduct a comprehensive survey to paint a picture of the pay & conditions of the ICT industry.
The 2018 ICT Professionals Report serves as a tool that employees and employers can utilise to track and predict trends in wages, conditions and employment.
There is a lot of detail but, here are four things you need to consider before you use the report.
You want to know about your pay so, here is what you need to know:
- The average salary across IT industry rose by 3.3 per cent for a base salary of $95,000
- Data warehousing, SharePoint and e-Commerce attracted the highest wage growth
- Private sector wages grew by 3.8 per cent compared to 2.7 per cent in the public sector
This report covers a lot more information that just your pay. We asked IT professionals about their work-life balance. These questions ranged from professional development opportunities, hours of work and work priorities.
If pay hurts your stability, your productivity suffers too!
In the current climate, it becomes important to factor in who will pay you a decent wage to live off. The cost of living is getting higher and pay increases have stalled.
Thankfully, wages across the ICT industry rose above the wage and consumer indexes last year. It’s still important to check how your current pay compares to an equivalent role/position.
The report provides simple tables and graphs with pay information relating your industry, level of experience and many others. Go ahead, find out if your pay matches up.
Wouldn’t you be more productive if you were more likely to get a pay rise?
The report predicts that production management, data analytics and clouds are most likely to increase in demand over three years.
Why not get ahead and upskill in these areas? You could earn yourself a pay rise by showing your employer that you are committed to learning new skills.
