The latest quarterly survey by recruitment firm Peoplebank of full-time salaries paid for IT roles suggests that demand and pay rates are largely steady across Australia. However, there are some notable variations, especially in less populated cities. Queensland salaries have fallen by around 5 per cent, WA salaries have increased in some roles, and most other states remain stable.

We’ve highlighted a selection of the salary figures in the table below. The numbers quoted here are base salaries (so no super, bonuses or other extras). Figures in red show a fall in average salary since the last quarter; figures in green show a rise. Peoplebank defines senior as more than five years experience, intermediate as three to five years, and junior as under three years in the role.

How do those figures match with your own experience? Tell us in the comments.
