STEADY AS WE GO

While salaries are relatively static, with graduate salaries the same as last year and team leaders up 1.3 percent, engineers are switching jobs more than ever and getting more non-salary perks. More than 20 percent of respondents changed jobs in the past year, significantly up from 15 percent two years ago. This year, 67 per cent of engineers received some kind of non-cash benefit, with health insurance growing in popularity while cars and car parks decreased. Also growing is the “other” category, which includes a diverse

MARKET INTELLIGENCE

The higher uplift in salaries at the lower and mid ranges we saw from 2014 to 2016 has slowed a little over the past year. Demand remains strong, including for international talent, driven by skill shortages in building services, structural, water and transport engineering, architecture, construction and civil infrastructure. Other salary and remuneration indicators are consistent with the results we’re seeing in the Engineering New Zealand Remuneration Survey.

array of insurances, mobile phones and wellbeing-related benefits.

This snapshot shows some headline results broken down into five career stages:

Graduate, Independent practice, Team leader, Technical manager and General manager.

While the proportion of female respondents increased to 16.5 per cent, there is a gender pay gap at every career stage except Graduate, as Figure 4 illustrates.

Members can download a detailed results spreadsheet at www.engineeringnz.org, where you’ll also find information on how to purchase the results if you aren’t a member.

General confidence in the engineering and construction economy remains high, with employers willing to invest in creating new positions as required. Although levels of remuneration across the country for similar positions are comparable, employers in Auckland and other growth regions are becoming increasingly more innovative in offering flexible working conditions, bonuses (including sign on) and other non-salary benefits (like temporary accommodation or use of a vehicle) to attract and retain staff.
