5. HR manager: R20 000 – R40 000 per month
The HR profession is one that general office employees can easily transition into – by obtaining relevant HR training and developing the required skills.
While an HR representative might not initially earn that much more than an average office employee, HR managers are some of the highest paying careers that are not necessarily required to have university degrees.
4. Instrument technician: R25 000 – R40 000 per month
Instrument technicians work with the measuring and controlling devices found in industrial and manufacturing processes. To qualify for this type of work, you need a national diploma and trade test certification.
Instrument technicians often step into high-paying entry-level positions, yet earnings generally peak at R40 000 per month after five to 10 years’ experience.
