* description and pay levels are ridiculously out-of-of sync
* almost no one gives a salary range, thereby wasting everyone's time.
* wages are still at levels from 10 to 20 years ago
For example, here's a position at LINZ in Wellington CBD that they are having trouble filling (go figure).
For a Data and Reporting Analyst role, they are starting at $50,000 to $65,000.
Here's what they require:
Understanding of data tools and databases: e.g SQL
* Knowledge of report writing using standard tools such as SSRS and/or Power BI
* Knowledge of Excel reporting, macros, charting and Pivot Tables
During ASaTS Transition, assisting with data migration, data quality improvements, and data reconciliations as required
* Monitoring known data quality issues
* Create individual scripts for data fixes from templates and generate change orders to run these scripts
Providing informed property systems data analysis, data matching and ad-hoc extracts
* Developing and maintaining reports, extracts and dashboards as required.
* Advising on data supply and giving advice regarding external databases (supplied via bulk data extract and other scheduled extracts/reports)
* Supporting the current reporting tools and maintaining reporting and data documents
* Undertaking manual report scheduling or running
It's not just LINZ, CCDHB wanted a person with extensive data warehouse experience for $75,000. Again this is a very lucrative job.
IT salaries have not risen substantially in 10 years, yet housing prices have gone through the roof.
If they do fill the job at this pay level, the person will keep for less than a year until they get a better offer.
It's just annoying.
