ACA Salary Survey Analysis 2023

29 June 2023

The ACA National Salary Survey provides essential information on remuneration and salaries in 31 different roles for the architectural profession. What are pay rates in the industry for 2023? What are the trends and how have salaries changed? In this CPD webinar, QUT’s Lindy Osborne Burton unpacks the key findings of the 2023 report.


QUT’s Lindy Osborne Burton joins us again to outline the broad trends identified in the ACA National Salary Survey and compares these to the results from previous years. The competitive employment market for key experienced staff has led to considerable staff movement over the last year, but what impact has this had on salaries? Learn about 2023 latest trends in different roles and different practice sizes, hear about the gender breakdown in practice and learn about the state of the gender pay gap.
