Salary Range

It is worth mentioning, even when the Salary & Benefits Guide is released, the salary range can be wide. There are many variables. We are always happy to give you personalised advice about where you should sit salary-wise and what various factors can affect this. 

As an example, it depends on:

  • Size of firm you work in
  • Your breakdown of responsibilities as in consulting compared to compliance
  • The size clients you are dealing with in terms of annual turnovers or IFRS/PBE Tiers
  • What kind of client industries are you dealing with and/or are you specialising
  • The location you are based
  • How many staff you are managing
  • If you are reviewing work, is this during peak time or regularly
  • What are you doing in terms of business development or networking

Reflect and Act

Consider what you are currently receiving and what benefits interest you. Are they simply nice to have, or are they deal-breakers?
