Up-to-the-minute estimates of IT industry salaries and pay rates is the promise of Candle IT & T Recruitment's Salary Zone website.
Salary Zone covers Australia and New Zealand and is a free online survey allowing IT professionals to anonymously list their own salary rates for others to view.
Candle national marketing manager Paul Quinn says as rates are updated by employees in real time, Salary Zone can offer up-to-date pay rates that are continually updated, whereas some surveys are months out of date when published.
Following a "soft" launch before Christmas, Candle says salaryzone.co.nz is receiving about 100 submissions a week.
Last week, the site quoted rates including $A68 an hour for a senior analyst programmer in New South Wales, $NZ68,000 a year for a database designer in DB and Oracle in Wellington and $NZ45,000 a year for a Windows/NT networking manager in Auckland.
