Gauteng is the country's best paying province

The Gauteng province continues to be the country's highest paying province, according to the Career Junction's newly released salary review.

According to the review, the main reason for this, is because most business lies in Gauteng. Looking at skills in senior level salaries, the three industries that stand out are the engineering, ICT and finance industries.

Gugu and Sizwe looked closely at the review with Odile Badenhorst, Communications Manager at Career Junction. Badenhorst says there are certainly loads of opportunities for the youth of today, especially those who qualify for BEE.

Listen to the audio below for more details on the review...

When analyzing over 150 thousands jobs, among the top ten sectors, we found interesting trends including that Gauteng pays more- on average Gauteng pays more about 10%-5% more across the few industries.

There were few industries that spark out and those include the financial, engineering,admin and sales sectors. And what we found is that it's highly based on demand. So, when we have a high demand for certain skills, especially highly skilled professionals, salaries would be higher.

If you look at Gauteng, most of the big corporations are based in Gauteng, therefore most of the demands for higher skilled professionals would be in Gauteng.

We've always seen the strength where Gauteng pays the best. When it comes to salaries, Gauteng is the best place to be.
