​Top jobs in NZ IT revealed

Analysis by jobs site Seek shows IT careers continue to offer compelling financial benefits, especially for IT architects.

Jobs website Seek has revealed the top paying industries and jobs in New Zealand, and IT features strongly.

The highest paying industry overall was consulting and strategy with an average salary of $98,415, closely followed by ICT with an average salary of $97,200.

The biggest salary increases, however, were in construction with a three per cent improvement year-on-year on the back of earthquake rebuilding in the South Island and new home building, especially in Auckland.

ICT workers on average scored two percent increases year-on-year.

GPs attracted the highest salaries in the land, averaging $155,416, but IT architects and IT managers scored second and third places in the analysis, with average salaries of $125,257 and $124,982 respectively.
Both job categories also saw higher than industry average salary increases at three per cent year-on-year.
They also pipped finance managers, who recorded an average salary of $117,869.
Seek spokesperson, Sarah Macartney, said it was no surprise that salaries for IT architects were among the highest advertised.
“This is a highly technical skill, so that’s why it commands a high salary," she said.
"IT architects play a fundamental role in the structural design of shared information environments to help keep Kiwi’s digitally connected and competitive, and this need is ever increasing."
As growth in advertised salaries year-on-year has remained relatively flat, Macartney said, employees should look at what other perks or benefits they can weave into their remuneration.
“This may be the inclusion of a phone or car in their package, free parking or gym memberships, or increased annual leave,” she added.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
