[Salary Survey]

About the survey

Our IT Salary Survey is in its fourteenth year! Having gauged the IT industry’s well-being and tracked local salary and career trends for nearly a decade and a half, the survey is firmly established as the industry’s only independent IT salaries reference guide.

Last year we received just under 4 000 valid responses and we hope to attract an even bigger sample this year.

The 2012 ITWeb / CareerWeb Salary Survey, which runs online for three weeks - from 21 September to 12 October, differs from previous Salary Surveys in that it focuses exclusively on salary trends within the IT industry and no longer includes the job satisfaction and career plan questions. These questions will be incorporated into a separate IT Job Satisfaction Survey which will run online on ITWeb later this year.

Subsequently, this year’s study will be conducted from a significantly more target-driven platform and take up far less of our participants' time.

Participation in the survey will enable IT employees to compare their salaries to the industry average, point to the most sought-after IT skills and automatically enter them into a draw to win a Nespresso coffee machine.

We hope that you will participate and help us keep the ITWeb / CareerWeb Salary Survey as accurate a salary trend indicator as possible.

Release of results

The results will be published online on ITWeb ( and CareerWeb ( later in the year.

A summary of the results will be published in print as a special feature on ITWeb’s iWeek magazine.

The report will also be made available for download in PDF format.

Who should read the report

The report is a must-read for all IT professionals working in the local IT industry, as well as an indispensable reference for IT employers and HR managers.

It will help employers set market-related salaries and determine appropriate package structures, enabling them to make better-informed hiring decisions, attract and retain top IT skills, and track current and developing remuneration trends.
