What is the average rate of pay for your profession? And how does your salary stack up against industry standards? The Local Government Engineers’ Association (LGEA) takes the guesswork out of these questions with a range of reports and calculators. We can help benchmark your pay packet, work out the appropriate remuneration for your role and industry, and make the case for a pay rise.

Being informed helps pave the way towards better pay.
