Average salries in Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have left a couple of posts recently trying to find info about the kind of lifestyle myself, my fiancee and our daughter can hope to have when we (hopefully) come to live in Melbourne in the next couple of years.

 

We are looking to live in the Western suburbs, probably Point Cook, and I have worked out from previous answers that a salary of around $70k (it will only be me working) should be enough for us to have a similar kind of lifestlye to what we have in the UK at the moment. So my question now is - how likely am I to find a job that wil pay $70k?!

 

I currently work in the financial industry and am earning £36k in London By the time we move over I hope to be on approx £45k, and in a position to earn slightly more. Can anyone tell me what kind of percentage of the population earn $70k so i can try to work out what my chances are?

 

All of your help is appreicated as always!

 

James

Hi,

 

The genral rule I have seen on here is take your UK pay and multiple by 2.2, this will then give you the wage you need to earn to have the same standard of living in Melbourne.

 

Eg £45k = $99k needed.

Do you know if this is in any migration guides or anything else vaguely "official" looking? It would be of great help to show to prospective employers.

 

Cheers.
