NB: Duplicate roles (where salaries are identical) removed with the exception of the Big 4 accounting firms. Discrepancies between graduate salaries at a firm have been marked with a "~" symbol and an average of the amounts has been included. All amounts are denominated in AUD
  • Surveyed graduate salaries ranged from mid $50,000s to $250,000 (depending on the role).
  • Sign-on bonuses are not uncommon in this hot market even for graduates so it may be worth asking for one.
  • In law and finance, graduate salaries were typically uniform within the cohort. 
  • In Big 4, there can be discrepancies depending on team, previous work experience, number of degrees etc.
  • Geographical differences between cities were common with Sydney being the obvious city dishing out the leading salaries.
