Every year we conduct a Salary and HR Issues Survey of NZ law firms. This year, 117 law firms (representing 3,574 staff) participated in our New Zealand survey, making it the most comprehensive, independent HR and remuneration study across all roles (including actual salaries paid) within the New Zealand legal industry. The report on the 2022 survey was released in early March to assist firms with their annual staff reviews. 

Join us for a discussion of the findings of the survey and an insightful overview of the current recruitment market from our sponsors Fluid Recruitment. 

Presented by:
