Default Annual Salary

Hi,

i'm interested moving in Australia and so i'm searching for a job.

What would be a nice salary for a 1 year experienced auditor/advisor, previously worked with a "big 4"?

Dependant on experience and skill level but you should earn more than $100k

A "Nice" salary would be over $100k

But, according the the 2010 Hayes salary guide, these are examples of average salary ranges in Sydney:
  • Assistant Accountants Diploma Qualified (up to 2 yrs years experience) $40k - $50k
  • External Audit Graduates (1-2yrs Experience) $39k - $48k

Hi there,

Halo, my OH spoke to an employer this morning and he was quoting a salary of around 50000k per annum (or 24$ per hour) should he decide to sponsor him. I think this is slightly under the going rate for his trade. on the 457 visa i seem to recall reading that the employers obligation is to pay the going average local salary for any specific occupation ...sort of a protection for a migrant against exploitation. is this so .. and how do we determine what that rate is?? as you may recall from an earlier discussion i was a little concerned about finding work myself to sustitute the household income, especially in smaller towns.

thanks

Hi,

Based on my research, the average salary for a person with 1 year of experience is about 50-55k.

I got 65k (2 years of experience) from "one of big four" in Sydney.

Hope this helps

Hi ...

well my OH has close on 20years in his field... maybe it is lower due to the rural setting of the company. from what i have researched the employer would need to pay the same salary to a migrant as he would to an aussie local. wonder what the locals on the limestone coast are being paid. forgot to mention this comes with a company car and cell phone because of the nature of the job

Does not sound fair - But then again it could be country wage - As rent will be next to nothing so its ALL relative. In and around Melbourne is $500/week while out in the sticks its more like $200 so you can do the math.

All I am saying is that temps get that for filling paper.
