Leading Positions with Six-Figure Salaries in Kenya

Leading Positions with Six-Figure Salaries in Kenya

Despite Kenya’s rising unemployment rate, there are positions across many economic sectors that come with enormous benefits.

In Kenya, both the national and local governments continue to be among the biggest employers. Since the majority of the population is thought to work in the informal economy, which is mostly tax-free, the private sector is the largest in the formal economy.

The Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) reports that employees in the private sector make more money than those in the public sector in its Economic Survey 2023.

Graduates and diploma holders in Kenya who are fortunate enough to get employment may earn salaries above Ksh 100,000 but yet remain above Ksh 1 million. These exorbitant wages are paid to top State officials, lawmakers, and managers in blue-chip corporations.

This shows that there are people who laugh all the way to the bank and at the end of every month in spite of the difficulties in the labor market.

developed a list of some of the best occupations in the nation that pay well.

Medical professionals, including as nurses, doctors, and other experts, have respectable incomes that are higher than those of the average Kenyan.

Employees in the nursing industry make starting salaries in the private sector of Ksh100,000, according to the Economic Survey report published by KNBS. Most doctors make over Ksh150,000, and some make close to Ksh1,000,000.

Private hospital employees receive higher pay than their public hospital counterparts. Government doctors occasionally work for months without being paid because their position is decentralized and dependent on county taxes or Treasury funding.

A few prestigious universities, such as the University of Nairobi, Kenyatta University, Moi University, JKUAT, Maseno University, Egerton University, and Kisii University, to name a few, provide medical studies.

There are several middle-level colleges that provide medical training, including Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC), which also offers clinical medicine and nursing programs.
Insurance and Finance

Some of the personnel in banks and insurance companies receive great remuneration. Experts in banking and insurance, according to KNBS, make up to Ksh152,000 per year, which is more than the ordinary Kenyan earns.

Accountants, credit officers, financial brokers, insurance agents, auditors, risk managers, and other occupations are only a few of the vocations in this field.

Some educational institutions that offer training in financial and insurance-related subjects are the University of Nairobi, Kenyatta University, Cooperative University, and Strathmore University.Jobs in the construction industry

The top three construction industry professionals that earn six-figure salaries each month are architects, engineers, and interior designers. Some of these professionals earn Ksh500,000 on average per month.

An interior designer with an average of 5 to 9 years of experience makes Ksh750,000 annually, including bonuses, overtime pay, gratuities, and allowances.

Similar to engineers, architects are paid between Ksh100,000 and Ksh800,000 depending on their level of expertise and the difficulty of their work. They can earn over a million dollars, making them some of the highest-paid workers in the nation, depending on experience and other considerations.

The University of Nairobi, Technical University of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), and Moi University are a few institutions that provide construction-related courses.

Training is also available in national polytechnics and middle-level colleges, including, among others, Kabete National Polytechnic, Nairobi Institute of Technology, and Kiambu Technical Institute.

ICT industry
The need for ICT specialists is growing as digital technology and the internet become more and more integrated into people’s daily lives.

Some of the top paid professionals in Kenya today include web developers, programmers, data analysts, and cybersecurity professionals.

The demand for expertise has caused multinationals to outcompete local businesses, with many major IT companies, like Microsoft, establishing a base in Kenya.

According to KNBS, professionals in the industry make up to Ksh170,000 annually. Some professionals make even more than Ksh one million.

Nearly every university in Kenya offers courses connected to IT.
