The Morgan McKinley 2019 Salary Guide for expected salaries and contract rates for professional roles in Australia.

The Morgan McKinley 2019 Salary Guide is a comprehensive resource that covers the latest remuneration and recruitment insights and salary figures from the past 12 months across Strategy & Innovation, Analytics, Accounting & Finance, IT, Risk & Compliance, Government and IT & Business Transformation in Australia.

Our guide is beneficial for both employers and job seekers as it outlines the expected salary bands for roles within specific sectors and provides insights on what the expert teams at Morgan McKinley foresee happening in their industries over the coming year.

“2018 saw a large focus on automation, data, and digital transformation, with a number of our disciplines seeing the flow on effects in demand in these areas. Now more than ever it is becoming more important for businesses to keep up with the digital transformation game, and securing the right talent in order to assist with this will be key” writes Louise Langridge, APAC joint-managing director of Morgan McKinley Australia.

“The Royal Commission without a doubt disrupted the Australian market, highlighting how much Australia was behind in areas such as data privacy and governance. As well as this we can expect technology to continue to shake up the market across all our disciplines, with consumer behaviours driving the need for the customer journey and experience to be at the forefront of many business decisions.”

“All of this has caused a further increase in the demand for agile candidates with wider transferrable skill sets as business units become more interconnected and interdependent.”

“Here at Morgan McKinley while we have seen increases in jobs across most of our markets (due to technology and digital transformation), the power of choice is shifting to the candidates with workplace flexibility and other benefits being big draw cards in order for our clients to attract the best talent. At the same time companies are now recognising the need to offer their own people internal opportunities to develop should they wish to retain their key talent.”

With up-to-date market insight, employment trends and relevant commentary from our specialist recruitment consultants and discipline directors, we hope that you find our Salary Guide valuable throughout 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact our expert consultants who will be more than happy to assist you with your hiring and career needs.
