2015 NZPI Salary Survey Report is Now Online!

09 August 2016

A huge thanks to all those who participated- we had 677 responses, slightly up on the 648 last year.

The Annual Salary Survey is an important service to members and we aim to keep improving it . This year we have tried to make it more focused and less complex, and we would welcome your feedback.

Key points are:

  • Median salaries have increased for most respondents with 75% reporting a pay rise
  • Most employers continue to support professional development and NZPI membership.
  • The majority of respondents were satisfied with their job (75%) or at least, were not considering leaving their current job.
  • On the down side, the continuing large gender gap in salaries-by age, job title and qualifications. This is something the Institute takes seriously and we will be looking at ways we can promote gender equality in the planning profession. We would really welcome your suggestions on how we can do this.
