 Money vs. lifestyle

Ahhh yes... the old lifestyle vs money dilemma!

It’s tough (and really quite impossible) to compare markets with markets. You simply cannot apply an exchange rate calculation to your current remuneration. To put generic salary levels in some perspective;

For all people 15 years and over:  

  • 58% earn under $30,000 pa
  • 14% earn between $30,000 and $40,000 pa
  • 9% earn between $40,000 and $50,000 pa
  • 10% earn between $50,000 and $70,000 pa
  • 7.5% earn over $70,000 pa.                          Source Statistics NZ

Broadly speaking, as an entry point into a recruitment role (depending on your level of expertise), you could expect a base salary to be between $40,000 - $75,000 pa for a consulting level position. In your first year, add another $20,000 as potential ‘at risk’ in incentives and you’ll arrive at your ‘on target earning’. Naturally these figures vary considerably and this is where rec2REC™ can advise you personally about where you ‘fit’ in this market.

At management level, remuneration structures are made up in a wide variety of manners. From profit share to incentive on personal and team sales.
