Administration salary trends

Quality administrative talent is recognised as integral to business success in the wake of digital transformation, as optimising human capital is essential to managing increasingly complex business operations and developing new commercial projects.

Here are three key areas impacting administrative salary trends:

While salaries are expected to remain stable for administrative talent, blended capabilities are in high demand and likely to command generous remuneration.
In a skills-short market, candidates with knowledge and experience with Enterprise Resource Planning software such as Oracle, SAP and Pronto are highly sought after.
Receptionists who can conduct financial tasks through advanced excel skills and data auditing using software such as MYOB and Xero are also in demand, particularly in the wake of rapid mining and infrastructure sector growth.
