The ALPMA Australia Legal Industry HR Issues & Salary Survey is open, and we encourage law firms to participate.
Understanding salary practices of the legal industry in Australia is a key aspect of recruiting the best possible team—which is why McKenna and Associates are proud sponsors of this vital survey.
When placing potential candidates with future employers, a number of factors are taken into account. The salary package is of leading consideration, and in some cases a determining factor.
The survey addresses points relevant to those working in Australian law including changes in Australian law firms, a benchmark for remuneration packages, and an idea of the direction of firms in 2021.
For many, an insight into the wage framework of legal practitioners in the area is especially helpful due to the unprecedented conditions of 2020. Some firms notably altered staffing practices in response to COVID’s impact.
The report offers insight into these changes across the board, and allows a window into current salary trends. Please note, the Australasian Legal Practice Management Association is a non-profit organisation.
The association’s extensive member list includes practice managers, senior executives, specialist managers, managing partners, and sole practitioners within a law firm or legal department.
ALPMA offers a number of invaluable services for those in the legal industry. Links to their content are available through the Association’s Facebook and LinkedIn, or the website alpma.com.au
The ALPMA survey is annual, and the independent data review delivers a comprehensive report. Salaries collated range across seventy legal, management, and support roles in legal firms throughout Australia.
Salary analysis is presented by region and size of firm, making it easier to compare your compensation with local competitors, while also offering a window into current national salary practices.
The final report is valued at $2,200 but firms who participate before February 26 have access to a free copy. At McKenna and Associates we encourage our clients to consider joining the survey.
As a leading legal boutique recruitment firm in Western Australia, the McKenna and Associates team are committed to utilising all tools at our disposal to provide outstanding service.
We believe evaluating information regarding legal practice management can only benefit our understanding of the industry. The survey considers a wide range of data related to human resource management.
Aside from wages, employment growth, talent acquisition, and staff turnover rates are a few areas of interest, letting law firms see if company trends are reflective of the industry as a whole.
The crucial question is, how does your firm compare? Information offered by the final annual report is detailed and extensive, offering invaluable food for thought during unusual times.
McKenna and Associates supports the ALPMA survey because we cannot stress enough the value of a real time, real data salary survey capturing present day conditions within the Australian legal profession.
Those interested in participating before the February 26 deadline who have details they would like clarified can contact ALPMA CEO Emma Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 03 8644 7055.
The confidential survey is online at alpma.com.au along with a Preparation Checklist. Once you’ve gathered the necessary data, the survey is estimated to take 30-60 minutes to complete.
