IT salary trends

As companies embrace emerging technologies and embark on ambitious digital transformation initiatives, particularly leveraging advances in AI, 5G, IoT, and cloud technology, IT professionals are in high demand with companies growing their teams.

Here are three key areas impacting Australian IT salary trends:

As more manual, process-driven roles are offshored, employers are seeking to replace these with techno-functional candidates with well-developed soft skills such as strong communication and stakeholder management capabilities.
As part of their strategy to attract and retain talented IT professionals, it’s crucial for companies to clearly communicate what technology stacks they work with and the innovative opportunities in the pipeline.
With many organisations investing in their IT and tech headcount to facilitate the implementation of new technologies and ambitious projects, starting salaries for many IT professionals are expected to rise as technology continues to play a central role in enabling change.
