About Management

Managers are one of the largest occupations in New Zealand, with more than 300,000 positions existing currently across all industries and businesses. The majority of management positions are gained through promotion. Employment of managers in industries such as agriculture, retail and construction are the highest. However, there is always a need for them in virtually every other industry.

Some managers for big corporations can earn a very large amount, while others such as small business owners earn a lot less. The average salary for management positions is approximately $92,000.

Another important factor in this industry is that there is an increasing need for managers to obtain higher levels of qualifications, with many nowadays opting to undertake a Masters in Business Administration, though this is not a prerequisite for a management position.
