A new initiative of Buzz Recruitment and Buzz Executive Search, this annual New Zealand salary survey will be an independent compensation and benefits report, showing “like-for-like” salary package comparisons and analysis for the New Zealand travel industry.
Our core business is in recruitment, talent attraction and career management for the travel industry. However we believe that Buzz is best suited to provide the New Zealand travel industry with a totally unbiased annual salary and benefits report at the same time keeping all participants completely anonymous.
We constantly get calls for the latest salary information from the industry, and we hope this report will become an important resource tool and a benchmark for travel professionals in evaluating key position salaries in New Zealand.
With valuable information like this, you'll be able to stay competitive. Providing you with detailed, qualified salary and benefit information for the industry, you'll have the knowledge to stay competitive and create compensation packages based on the most current information available.
