CHART OF THE DAY: Wages at the head office ranked
Salaries for the top jobs at mining companies have stayed the same from a year ago, according an end of year salary survey by Hays.
The recruiting company released its wage tally today.
It said wage trends in the mining industry matched trends in the broader economy as a whole, and any wage increases next year will be modest.
Salary increases aligned closely with the all–industry results, with 18 per cent reporting no increases, compared with 21 per cent overall, and 56 per cent saying increases were less than three per cent (48% overall). Looking ahead, industry professionals are conservative in their estimates. Almost a third (29%) say there will be no increases and all other expected pay rises will be less than six per cent.
