Average salary for jobs advertised in UK rises

Published: Wednesday, 21 November 2007   Category: Career Advice

A recent report has claimed that the average salary of jobs being advertised in the UK has risen by £300 to £31,672 a year, which could be good news for graduates looking to start their careers.

The Monthly Salary Index, published by AllTheTopBananas.com, analyses over 800,000 jobs that were advertised between May and October this year.

Dave Martin, the website's managing director, said: "The index is a fascinating way to see how your salary compares against the advertised average, both where you live and throughout the UK. Job hunters can use it as a tool to assess salary offers when looking for new work."

The index does not take into account at what point job seekers are in their careers, for example, if they are looking for graduate jobs or moving on from their current employment.

According to the research, London was the region with the highest advertised salaries with an average wage of £38,169.

Wales had the second highest average wage while East Midlands was the region with the lowest average wage advertised with a figure of £25,516.
