Discover the typical human resource management salary in a variety of roles.
Human Resources Officer
Ding! This is you, after you’ve earned your Diploma of Human Resource Management – you’ll have an arsenal of solid skills to put to the test. Don’t expect to achieve the higher remuneration tiers on day dot, even after the first year; higher pay will come as you up-skill internally and prove your value in the field of Change Management and Conflict Resolution.
National Average: $55,839
Human Resources Advisor
Upgrade your skills and walk into an advisory role, where you’ll be valued for your insights, analytical acumen and natural ability to know what works and what doesn’t. Sure, you’ll back it up with research, pour over data, measure performance and all the usual HR tasks, but your meetings will be filled with important mid-tier to high-tier management types.
National Average: $69,188
Human Resources Manager
Ah, you’ve made it! There are a couple of ways to achieve management status. The first, and arguably the best, studying a Diploma or Certificate IV in HR with Foundation Education and enter on the ground level, gaining experience while studying a Bachelor of HR at one of our affiliate Universities. Or, you can spend years at Uni, accumulating a debt without knowing if this is the career for you until you’re in the middle of it! Our advice? Don’t start in the middle.
National Average: $84,709
Senior Human Resource Manager
If you decide this is the career for you, why not strive to reach the top and achieve senior status? You’ll become the last word and the first one, directing your team to achieve targets, organise information, manage workflows and control the hiring strategy of your company.
