International recruitment consultancy Robert Walters re-launched its ‘Salary Checker’ app this week. The app, which reached number one in the top free business apps on iTunes (New Zealand), allows job seekers and employers instantly to compare salaries for a number of professions across 20 different countries.
The app’s data is drawn from Robert Walters’ Global Salary Survey, which has been running for more than 10 years. It allows users to:
Compare salaries for professions across continents: Asia, the Americas, Europe, UK, Africa
Compare salaries across different sectors
Compare salaries for several jobs at one time
Save favourite salaries and searches
Determine their own market rate
Track salary trends over time
“Finding out what you’re worth can be a minefield, but our new Salary Checker app makes it easy to determine what your current salary should be,” Erin Simmons, marketing manager at Robert Walters, said.
The app isn’t only for job seekers – it can also be a useful tool for employers who need to determine the salary range that they should offer a candidate. “The app also provides a comprehensive and accurate overview for employers looking to benchmark pay against the rest of the market,” Simmons said.
The current app is an upgrade of the first version, which was launched in 2011 for iPhone and iPad. This version is free and is available for all tablets and smart phones (both Apple and Android devices).
