AILA announces results of 2010 Salary Survey

AILA (Australian Institute of Landscape Architects) has recently announced the results of the 2010 Salary Survey with 530 respondents. This year the AILA survey has changed from past years with respondents gave their total salary package including superannuation (9% of  salary as compulsory retirement savings). AILA also changed the ‘experience in years’ for the junior positions and removed the Managers/Directors category.  Therefore it is hard to analyse the results in comparison to past years as managers could have between 5-15 years experience and are now included across the range of average salaries given.

Also as AILA states on the Salary Survey webpage

When using this data, these results are guides only.

The AILA has no salary scales nor can it recommend or set any salary scales.

The setting of salaries remains with the individual employee and employer.

It is illegal in Australia to have professional fee or salary scales set by the professional institute, such as the AILA. So we do not set any professional salary scales!  This survey is one set of figures that provide a rough averaged out indication or reflection of trends. It is one set of data to be used with other sources for any salary negotiations.

Standard government employer/employee regulations apply – see the applicable govenment website.
