11 September 2012: The annual survey of Australian Computer Society (ACS) members, the nation’s peak body for Information & Communication Technology (ICT) professionals, revealed today that ICT salaries have shown steady growth over the twelve months to May 2012. The 2012 annual survey was conducted for the ACS by the Association of Professional Engineers, Scientists and Managers, Australia (APESMA).
ACS Chief Executive Alan Patterson said that the findings of the 2012 Remuneration Survey demonstrated the continued underlying strength of the ICT sector in Australia.
“There are two key takeaways from these findings, the first is that ICT continues to provide strong, stable and well remunerated career paths for professionals. The second is that to help meet the continued business and government demand for suitable ICT professionals – more must be done to engage young people in ICT.”
