Every year we conduct a Salary and HR Issues Survey of NZ law firms. This year, 115 law firms (representing 2,992 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 2021 survey was released in early March to assist firms with their annual staff reviews.

Carmen Simmonds, General Manager at Norris Ward McKinnon and Eden Brown, Managing Consultant from the 2021 NZ Salary and HR Issues survey Sponsor, Fluid Recruitment, discuss the key findings of the survey and provide an insightful overview of the current NZ recruitment market.
