With the economic pressures brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit, it is more important than ever to find a role that’s right for you. Salary should be an important part of your decision-making process when applying for roles and accepting job offers.
While there is a lot of confusion over the state of the current job market, many employers are hiring, looking to maximise their business opportunities and enable growth. Average UK salaries are keeping pace or seeing a slight uplift to reflect this, as companies compete for a finite number of skilled employees in certain sectors or specialisms.

Knowing what is currently influencing employer decisions and the market average is will help you assess your professional worth, negotiate better and get a better starting salary.
While job prospects are strong, small talent pools exist within certain occupations, and confidence amongst candidates and employees remains moderate which is resulting in a lot of job movement as people look to advance their careers.
