Welcome to the Local Government Engineers Association’s (LGEA) Remuneration Survey Report for 2023.

The LGEA advocates for technical professionals working in local government across NSW and has periodically conducted industry surveys since 2008.

The survey provides a critical, contemporary insight into prevailing market rates of pay and key work conditions, giving us the tools we need to help our members negotiate the terms and conditions of their individual employment contracts or explore new employment opportunities.

During July and August 2022, we surveyed local government professionals — both members and non-members of the LGEA — to establish the facts on issues such as our demographics, qualifications, accreditation status, earnings, allowances, and overtime arrangements.

Thank you to all who participated in this survey. I would like to acknowledge the generous support of Active Super in the publication of the report, and I hope you find the information provided to be useful as you continue to progress your career.
