Salary at Department of Industry, Innovation & Science

What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?

In the graduate programme, the jump from APS3 to APS5 in your second year is really great. It reflects trust in your growing knowledge and experience and of course the extra money doesn't hurt either.

Because it's APS everyone at each level is paid the same and there are no bonuses. Salary increases with APS increments and is dependent on your EA, but is generally very good compared to grad averages.
