Average UK Salary of Careers

935588_paper_money_peopleAre you ready to find out how much better or worse off you are than the UK average for your job?  Perhaps you are thinking of changing jobs and want to know what the average UK salary is in your chosen career?

 

The Office for National Statistics are a dab hand with a calculator and have taken the information of over 23 million working people in the UK to work out what the average salary is within a range of different careers.

Of course these figures are only for illustrative purposes only because as you are aware level of pay is impacted by many factors including experience and geographical location…. but still it’s nice to see how you measure up in comparison to your average UK counterpart.

Obviously the 2015 sums have not been done yet, so these figures refer to 2014 earnings.  You can download the full report by clicking here.
