See beyond the numbers

Hays Salary Guide FY23/24 shows that skills shortages are entrenched in the Australian and New Zealand labour markets and these unshakeable deficiencies continue to intensify in many industries.

Despite increases in skilled migration, emerging technologies and an uncertain economic environment, almost nine in ten employers are experiencing a skills shortage now.

As competition stays high in this tight market, 95 per cent of employers are looking to increase salaries and 46 per cent are increasing their headcounts. It presents an attractive situation for jobseekers or those looking to progress their careers.

In the Hays Salary Guide, you’ll find:

  • Employment trends, benefits and salary information. 
  • How the work we do has fundamentally changed – and will continue to. 
  • How being constantly curious and upskilling can help future-proof your career. 
  • How to leverage your employer's support and bring your whole self to work.
