What to expect in the Hays & NZIOB Salary Guide

The general sentiment and confidence expressed by businesses and employees alike in the latest 2021 edition of the Hays Construction & NZIOB Salary Guide contrasts markedly to mid-2020 industry predictions.
When comparing 2021 actuals with 2020 forecasts, the major theme is that companies are in better shape compared to their expectations a year ago, when the ramifications of COVID-19 were still largely unknown. In parallel, employees have become more bullish about their prospects in the subsequent 12 months.

In the guide you will also discover:

  • The latest salary data for the building and construction industry
  • Typical salaries for 18 roles qualified by 11 locations, construction type (commercial, industrial, infrastructure and residential) and project size
  • The latest benefits, hiring and skills shortage trends
Our insights are based on a survey of construction leaders and professionals across New Zealand.
