Participation now open to all Australian & NZ law firms.
The Australian Legal Practice Management Association (ALPMA) today launched the Australian & New Zealand Legal Industry Salary Survey 2012, proudly sponsored by Legal People, a specialist legal recruiting consultancy based in Melbourne.
The ALPMA Salary Survey provides a comprehensive overview of salaries paid for all positions at legal firms across Australia and New Zealand.
“This year we are making significant improvements to the survey to enable firms to better benchmark themselves with “like” law firms” and to inform their retention and recruitment strategies moving forward,” ALPMA National President, Warrick McLean said.
“For the first time, we will be asking about the types of salary packages and benefits offered. The survey will also provide a deeper insight into the employment profile at law firms in terms of the breakdown between full time, part time, contract and casual positions.”
“This year’s survey also includes information relating to legal firms intentions regarding recruitment and salaries over the next 12 months,” he said.
These improvements have been made possible by the financial support of Legal People.
“Legal People are pleased to be associated with the ALPMA Legal Industry Salary Survey 2012,” Legal People Partner, Sharon Henderson said.
“This survey will provide greater insight into actual salaries and benefits being paid by law firms across the country, enhancing the great work that ALPMA has been doing,” she said
The survey is open from today until 18 May to legal firms in Australia and New Zealand. To participate, legal firms simply need to open this link in their internet browser: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ALPMA_SalarySurvey_2012
Every firm who completes the survey will receive the ALPMA 2012 Legal Industry Salary Survey Report free of charge as an incentive to encourage strong participation from across the industry. This report is available for $550 for non-participating ALPMA members or $2,200 for non-members.
The Australian & NZ Legal Industry Salary Survey is a key part of ALPMA’s legal industry research program, which also includes ALPMA’s Legal Industry Financial Benchmarking program, conducted in partnership with Crowe Horwath.
