Business growth, upgrades and shortage of skilled staff are combining to drive up salaries in the technology sector. New Zealand technology staff can look forward to an average 3.8 percent pay rise in 2012 according to recent 2012 Robert Half Technology salary guide.
Data architects and business analysts are set to receive the biggest year-on-year salary gains, with average pay rises of 7.5 percent and 7.3 percent respectively.
