The Administration sector in Sydney and across Australia is in rude health according to our 2015 salary survey. Obvious hot spots are the large cities in each state with a balance of contract and permanent roles available.


When we ran our 2015 salary survey across the Architecture market, we found salaries and rates largely consistent across different states and opportunities (as usual) focused in the large urban areas.

Civil & Structural Design Engineering

The Civil & Structural Design Engineering markets are clearly defined but with many consultancies covering two or more of these design sectors, they are naturally aligned. We also found in surveying the market for our 2015 salary survey, that salary and rates were similar for positions levels across the disciplines.

Construction Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering market tends to be less directly affected by immediate economic conditions in the way that Construction Build and Housing are and our salary surveys over the years have shown a greater degree of stability in the volume of opportunities in the Civils market as well as in salaries and rates.
