My other thread about negotiating job offers got me thinking. I'm so terribly British I don't really know what even my friends are on. But I'm interested to find out what the average on here is and if mine fits in. So here's my salary history.

First job: £16k
Second job: £12k, left on £19k (took a pay cut for a more interesting job)
Third job: Started on £25k, leaving on £35k
New job: £38k

I'm in the media.

What's yours?

OK, eggy what's your job and how do I get it? It's my dream to work part-time.

25k. I'm a scientist. Started on 20k 4 years ago fresh from university.

32k, nurse. Annual pay rises, good pension etc

PippaFawcett Mon 12-Dec-16 22:53:15

£31k plus benefits which include free phone and a good pension.

But comparable jobs near me the salaries are £40k, but I am v tired at the moment and loathe to lose the flexibility of my current job.

First job after graduation: £17k
Second job: £20k - £24k
Third job: £30k stayed 10 years, rose to senior management, with bonus, £72k
Took an enforced career break and raised children.
Now: About £5k/year part-time. Fortunately we don't need my earnings to get by. If I'm lucky I will earn £25k/year full-time in my new career once I get established.

I'm perm but on 98k basic as a programme manager do get bonus and holidays, car etc. Most of the people that work for me earn more as I hire them as contractors. Can't decide if contracting may be the better route as all my people have worked for me for years

Low six figures. Lifestyle to match salary (mainly spent on private school for 2DC). Trapped by it all, however live by the decisions I've made. Not ungrateful, but regret not having a better work life balance.

On an hourly rate so depending on hours and days I work between 17,000 and 20,000

CountryLovingGirl Tue 13-Dec-16 22:50:08

What did you retrain as OhTheRoses?

£6K NHS Trainee position straight out of uni
£21K Once qualified
£35K now and at the top of the band 6 NHS pay scale with no where to go (as they are centralising services all over the place). I have more qualifications (and, probably experience) than our new band 8.

In my 40's and want out - fed up of the poor work life balance and frustration!
