Security salaries rise in NSW, as contracting rates fall

Demand for security professionals, and the amount employers are willing to pay for them, are both on the rise.

Recruitment firm Hudsonn ICT's 2010 Salary Guide suggests that security specialists can look forward to slightly inflated pay packets in 2010.

The company's annual publication says that hiring of IT staff dropped off in early 2009, but started to grow again during the second half of the year, the singles out NSW as a region in which it has seen growth in hiring of security professionals along with increased wages for permanent staff.

That finding is temepered by the assertion that contractors' experienced "decreases in some job families ranging from 10% to 30%."

The publication suggests the following as pay rates security specialists should expect to command around Australia:
