It’s the dreaded question – how much are you expecting for this role? With so many salaries listed as ‘dependent on experience’ or ‘competitive’, it’s difficult to know what to expect or how to negotiate.
Here at Journo Resources we’re bored of this secretive nonsense. In March 2018 we started releasing anonymised lists of salary data to help give you a sense of how much you should be paid for your work and asking for.

The Salaries and Data
We’ve broken jobs down into various types within the industry. Some of these categories are broader than we’d like right now, but we’ll add more as soon as we get more data.
Jobs marked with SB have been submitted by a member, hence why they are anonymised. Jobs marked with JA are from a job advert which is publically available. Those denoted with an asterisk have been translated from an hourly wage. To keep this data current and useful, we’ll only include salaries from the last five years.
