New Zealand set for salary boom
Brits currently struggling with the gloomy economic situation at home are being advised to look to New Zealand where salaries are expected to rise by as much as 20 per cent over the coming twelve months.
The 2013 Robert Walters salary survey examined salaries from around the globe last year and has made predictions for the coming year for contract, interim and permanent jobs in New Zealand’s two largest cities. Experienced tax accountants in Auckland can expect to see their pay packets increase from $100,000 to $120,000 per year and last year financial controllers saw their salaries leap from $120,000 to $180,000. This year wages for the most experienced could go as high as $200,000 per year.
The Emigration Group director, Paul Arthur, said a better lifestyle and more money meant that many Brits were considering a move abroad, and New Zealand is currently very attractive for those looking to boost their income.
According to Arthur New Zealand currently has a skills shortage which means salaries are being pushed up across the board from health professionals to IT experts. The construction and financial sectors are also crying out for skilled workers.
In terms of numbers of nationals living in other countries the UK ranks eighth in the world. Experts believe that the number of people choosing to migrate for a better life will continue to increase over the coming years.
