Dear What Am I Worth,
I am 28 with a BEng in Automation Engineering and am ex-Royal Navy with two-thirds of an aeronautical engineering degree and 2.5 years’ field experience in mechanical engineering on rotary aircraft.
I hold a post grad cert in secondary education in IT/DT. Prior to emigrating here I worked within GKN Aerospace, starting as a systems admin and ending up as synthetic engineering consultant -- VR training systems. Upon moving here I landed a job within a business unit of Industrial Research as a business analyst. My current role exposes me to all manner of IT influences, I manage a team and coordinate other contract staff/other departments as required.
My role encompasses technical sales and sales support, resource management and a capital budget and my primary responsibility is the delivery and quality of technical services to clients. I am also now IT-qualified amongst other professional courses.
Not at sea
Elan IT replies: At first glance you have a broad variety of disciplines within your role. This is very much dependent on whether there is a commission portion in your current package and the proportion of time spent in each of these areas. As a project manager/BA you would probably be looking at around $70,000 to $80,000 before extra benefits.
