Marketing, sales and IT could be up for big pay rises in 2017

New report reveals marketing, sales and IT sectors in Australia could expect generous salary increases this year

The recruitment market is showing a strong resurgence in marketing, sales and IT in Australia, with salary surges expected across all three sectors, a new report found.

The Salary Survey 2017, released by Robert Walters, showed a new resurgence in hiring across sales, marketing customer service, banking and IT sectors. According to the report, opportunities were greatest for those with very specialist skills, particularly in digital technologies and digital marketing.

In Victoria, digital marketing managers could expect a $40,000 salary hike this year from $140,000 in 2016 up to a maximum of $180,000. In Queensland, customer service team leader salaries could rise from $75,000 to $90,000.

The report further anticipated high levels of demand among large corporates for IT professionals experienced in cloud security and big data, reflecting the increasing use of mobile technology in all sectors. Salaries for IT workers or system engineers in Sydney for instance, could rise by 45 per cent from last year to $160,000.

Despite these positive trends, the survey warned continuing decline of the commodities sector and wider fears about the economy has dented confidence across almost all other sectors throughout the year. It found the market remained less active in Western Australia and Queensland, the areas hardest hit by the decline of the mining industry.

Innovations in retail will bring creative and technology closer than ever

While approaching a customer in a shop and asking what you can help them with is Retail 101, how many of us actually enjoy being approached? Generally, you have to give the forced, fake smile and say, “Just browsing, thanks,” while screaming on the inside, “just leave me alone!” Maybe it’s just me?

There’s a brand in my digital soup

Not a day passes by in the life of business executives where digital innovation or the prospect of disruption is not front of mind. This in turn, drives an unrelenting flow of questioning, discussion and strategy papers.
