Now, SEEK, Australia's number one marketplace for employment, declares Australia’s greatest paying industries and occupations across the nation.

The data which puts the aggregate advertised salaries over 28 industries, unveils Mining, Resources & Energy as the sector to be the most profitable for workers in Australia. The data reveals the greatest average announced salary over the nation for this industry is $116,108 per year. This sector has been continuously the best performer in the stakes in pay, topping SEEK’s Yearly ranking of salary as the biggest paying industry for the sixth year working.

The best 5 paying industries with the biggest average salary:

1. Mining, Resources & Energy Industry average salary is $116,108
2. Consulting & Strategy Industry average salary is $110,045
3. Construction Industry average salary is $109,325

5. Administration & Office Support Industry average salary is $58,671

SEEK ANZ Managing Director, Kendra Banks stated: With current reports giving confidence slowly reverting to the sector, it’s no wonder that Mining, Resources & Energy wages are running to maintain the best spot in this annual SEEK yearly rankings of Salary. Despite this ranking, average published salaries are well under the level they were at 5 years before, with the sector posting the most significant drop in average announced wages over the latest 5 years and several of the significant mining roles missing from the top salaries list.

In 2013, Mining, Resources & Energy controlled the rankings, allowing 13 of the top 20 greatest paying jobs. This number has decreased significantly to simply two salaries in the top 20 in 2018.
