Business Analyst Salary Range – Are you paid enough?

Like with any Business Analyst salary range information, this is quite a subjective view (my view) and just a rough estimate. This page describes different levels of Business Analysts with Australian and UK salaries attached to it.

What is your experience level – truthfully?

Entry level business analyst (0 to 12 months of experience)

You have started working formally as a business analyst on a project where you mostly perform non-specialist requirements work. You role includes documenting requirements, sitting in on many requirement sessions where you are taking requirements related notes and you may also be doing process maps and activity diagrams or use case diagrams. You will typically be supported by a senior business analyst or you will only be working on small project. Qualifications wise…you will have some business analysis coursesunder your belt or you will be a fresh graduate.
