To understand the salesperson market in Australia, including how many people get employed, how employers reach salespeople, how many people and market size in revenue.
The average hourly pay for a salesperson / Salesman / Saleswoman in Australia is AU$20.37
According to statistics by the Australian government “the number of people working as Sales Assistants (General) (in their main job) is about the same as five years ago and is expected to stay about the same over the next five years: from 517,800 in 2018 to 525,200 by 2023.”
Job openings for salesperson mostly come from turnover (workers leaving) while a few come from new jobs being created, but most come from turnover
According to an article published on Smart Company, “….the average sales staff turnover can be anything around 25-50% per annum or more in some cases. Some call centres experience turnover rates of over 70% per annum.”
Employers reach candidates for salesperson position through job seeking sites such as Mondo Search.
During the initial hour of research, we were able to find some useful insights on salespeople's position in Australia's job market. There appears to be little to no information on the market size by revenue. Generally, information on salespeople is minimal, and we had to rely on Australian government statistics mostly.
Only the project owner can select the next research path.
