Why Upgrade to an IT Career

1. Earn More than the Average NZ Salary

Did you know that the median salary in New Zealand is $48,724 per year while the median IT salary is $90,000* . High IT salaries are fueled by the chronic shortage of skilled IT workers in New Zealand and many companies are forced to hire from overseas to fill their vacancies.

2. Gain Career Security

The Government has highlighted a long list of IT occupations with long-term skills shortages. These include systems analysts, systems administrators, developer programmers, software engineers, software testers, database administrators, network administrators, support engineers and customer support officers.

With the continual innovation and growth in the IT industry, there is almost unlimited career potential for today’s IT workers. There will always be new IT jobs created in the future that don't exist today, just like Andriod app developer roles that barely existed 5 to 6 years ago.
