Cape Town salaries finally trump Joburg with bigger and better packages - survey
It has always been a known factor that jobs in Gauteng offer a fatter salary package than jobs in the Western Cape.
Now, a survey by an online job aggregator recruitment company is proving a shift in this trend.
Country manager of Adzuna recruitment, Jesse Green says since he started working for Adzuna in 2016 he has realised that jobs white collar jobs in Cape Town pay better than jobs in Johannesburg.
According to data from Adzuna, of the 140,000 jobs advertised through its platform, Western Cape salaries averaged R369,401 while salaries in Gauteng averaged R304,799 - a R64,602 difference.
It depends on which area you take. If you take the whole of Gauteng and the whole of the Western Cape is very different when you take jobs in Cape Town or the centre of Sandton where you might find that the salaries are closer. It also depends on the industry which you work in.Jesse Green, Country manager - Adzuna recruitment
What is important to know is that it is all averages but yes it does appear that in Cape Town you can earn more on average, depending on what your skills are, but you also might be paying more for rental.Jesse Green, Country manager - Adzuna recruitment
Green says Cape Town is also the most expensive when it comes to rentals which cost workers about 38% of their salary.
