Kfm Mornings with Darren, Sherlin, and Sibs recently delved into the realm of top-paying jobs in South Africa, as shared by Darren Simpson. Although the exact source of Darren’s information remains a mystery, the team presented a list of lucrative professions in the country.
Here’s a glimpse of the top-paying jobs according to their discussion:
- Software developers: R40-60K
- Business analyst: R41-60K
- Senior manager in the business sector: R45-60K
- IT project administration: R50-60K
- Civil and structural engineer: R45-65K
- Mechanical engineer: R33-66K
- Consulting engineer: R43-70K
- Technical business architect (IT): R65-90K
- Executive manager (CEO and CFO): R91-125K
The list highlights the financial allure of engineering professions, prompting discussions on whether these jobs resonate with the younger generation’s aspirations. In an era dominated by dreams of TikTok stardom and YouTube success, the team pondered the evolving landscape of career choices as reported by 702.
While radio presenters, including Darren himself, are left in limbo regarding their “sexiness” in the job market, the team humorously noted that being a TikTok star or YouTuber didn’t make the cut in the top-paying jobs list. However, these unconventional careers may still secure multiple income streams.
Additionally, Darren compared South Africa’s average monthly salary for 2023 to other BRICS countries, offering a unique perspective:
- Brazil: R7570
- Russia: R9453
- India: R11000
- China: R17679
Despite South Africa having the highest average salary among BRICS nations, the team acknowledged the challenging economic landscape, emphasising the need for continuous improvement. The discussion concluded with a lighthearted remark about South Africa’s average salary not being “great” but better than it could have been, given the global context.
