TOP 5 Highest & Lowest Paid Jobs In Australia!


Online employment marketplace Seek has revealed the highest and lowest paid jobs advertised on its website in the past 12 months.

Those at the top are currently being offered annual salaries of over $137,000 while workers at the bottom can expect to take home around $44,000. But which jobs have the best and worst pay? Let's take a look.

  • As you'd expect, the mining sector was the highest paid industry on Seek for 2016.

The average advertised mining salary was between $115,005 and $133,169 depending on the position.

However, when the figures are broken down into individual jobs, miners are beaten by architects who make a cool $137,707 on average. The other highest salaried jobs were engineers ($133,530), IT managers ($129,903) and GPs ($129,635).

What about the other end of the spectrum? Admin workers, retail assistants, factory workers, receptionists and packers/pickers are the lowest paid. The average advertised salary for these positions was under $47,000.

To put this into perspective, the average annual earnings for Australians currently stands at $60,892, according to the latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). This constitutes a wage growth of 1.6 per cent over 12 months.

"The most productive people seem to have it all figured it out. They have a to-do list and just rock at it, right? Well, it's a bit more than that. They make sure that what they do isn't just "busy work", but focused, daily work that steers them toward truly important stuff they want to get done. Here's how you can too."
