Some salary survey websites that may help:

The Hays Salary Survey

The Ambit Salary Index (not just IT careers)

My Career

"Real life" people post their salaries at SalaryZone as a guide top what is *really* paid (as opposed to advertised).

When looking at the wages being paid in Australia (when not self-employed), remember to include the 9% compulsory superannuation payment that your employer is required to pay on your behalf to a specified Super Fund (as long as you earn more than $450 per month.) Read the wikipedia guide for more info.

If Oz recruitment agents are anything like in the UK, you'll probably find that these jobs advertised don't exist and are just a means to get more candidates on their books.

A few days ago someone posted a website where people add their own salaries anonymously. Can't find it now...but it seems pretty good. You can filter by region, role etc

Did anyone see it/know the link???

We didn't go through recruitment agencies. I was offered a job by a migration agent and my husband was offered a job by a company he emailed his resume to. The fellow who is in charge of the Perth office actually phoned us one night and spoke to my husband. Any jobs we see that are through agencies, we skip over. Both of us have scoured the yellow pages for firms we think we might like to work for and if a website is not listed then we phone them for an email address for the person who does the hiring. This seems to have worked, as I got an email from a company in Adelaide this morning inviting me to an interview when we land.

For anyone in Melbourne area who wants to do house cleaning my friends in the Toorak area pay their cleaners $22 and $25 per hour respectively - they say that this is the going rate in that area - someone they know pays their lady $70 a hour to iron If you don't mind cleaning one of them is looking for a new cleaner - at the moment she employs a couple who do three hours each on two days so I would guess she would need someone for about 10 hours if they are on their own.

Salaryzone is a site like that, although it is a bit limited to it and finance salaries.

I was just wondering what the average wage for a First Class Welder would be in the Perth area. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Is it? I thought Australian wages were "crap." That's what people keep telling me. So I can only assume that $3500 gross a week is "crap."

After all, if sassenach and his OH can only survive on a joint wage of $3500 gross per week by "applied effort and sacrifice", then $3500 must be extremely "crap" indeed.
