"She only has matric. The only requirements were a matric certificate and a driver's licence. As of now, she has 10 years of experience."

Recruiter provides information about the salary

Zoe Elliott, a recruitment director at Resolution Placement Agency, spoke to Briefly News to discuss the earnings mentioned above.

The expert stated:

"As per my experience in the recruitment space, an administrator, with only 10 years of experience and no qualifications, on average earns between R22,000 and R25,000 per month. Some even earn R25,000 with degrees."

She continued to say that she receives administrator posts every week and has yet to see salaries above this amount.

"Post-COVID, sadly, the range has dropped significantly to between R15,000 and R20,000 per month, given the state that some companies are in financially, due to the decline in the economy."

When questioned about the parastatal administrator's earnings compared to the salaries she mentioned above, Zoe told Briefly News:

"I've placed people with Honours in such roles who didn't see that kind of money. If I give you my view, it's either connections or relationships. For me, it doesn't make sense. This is a managerial salary we're looking at."

Netizens react to the salary

While some online users stated that the payslip looked familiar, others shared their eagerness, surprise and interest in the professional's earnings.

@lorna_govender, who fell under the category of surprise, wrote in the comments:

"Imagine some of us study for four years, work so much harder, and don't see that salary."
