About the Salary Calculator

The Robert Half Salary Calculator is designed to offer a quick and easy insight into salaries for specific industries in Australia.

Whether you're a jobseeker searching for your ideal salary, an employee who is preparing to re-negotiate their salary, or a hiring manager preparing to hire for new roles, our Salary Calculator can help provide you with the insight based on your skills, experience and qualifications.

The pay calculator can create a customised pay range for your role based on specialisation, job category and job title.

Our salaries are presented in percentiles

These percentiles are determined by a candidate’s skill-set and experience level, as well as the complexity of their role – the higher the percentile the more complex the role and the greater skill-set and experience level required.

By providing a more comprehensive salary overview for all jobs, this approach allows hiring managers to better benchmark starting salaries against a candidate’s experience and qualifications.
