Written by Staff

Specialist recruitment firm, Michael Page, has published its latest salary survey – showing what skilled professionals in 164 different jobs in South Africa can expect to earn in 2019.

While the majority of sectors remain under pressure, significant drivers for more positive development will come from the banking & financial services, IT and transportation sectors, the recruiter said.

“As a result of limited household spending and private investment over the last 3 years, local and international organizations continue to be cautious when expanding into the African markets.

“Salaries and bonuses have tended to follow a consistent pattern over the past five years, with steady increases to reflect inflationary pressures.”

The averages represent annual salaries in thousands of rands (R’000).
