We're beating the national average for earnings. Ironic, seeing as this has been voted on during normal working hours. Are you all on flexi fridays and high pay?

Put 12-17k. I work part time as I look after my son and a significant chunk of my salary goes straight into childcare vouchers. To be honest I don't really think about it as my wife's salary is the one that defines our living standard. I know I'm unusual in that respect!

I'm working on four projects but they're all currently blocked so I'm just training. Although I do get flexi time. I don't think it's that surprising that we're above average as we're mostly from the older white male demographic which tends to be better paid.

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

Just in the £18,000-23,999 band. Not bad for having a quarter of a century of education under my belt, eh?

I'm not throwing stones, I'm on the train home as we work short Fridays at my place.

From early in my career I took the approach of quickly climbing the ladder in London and then moving North when I was at a comfortable level where you can spend the cash and get decent returns on a house. It has worked quite well. I did borrow the life plan from a friend though.

My basic salary is £17,926 or something along those lines, quite often do overtime if available (which varies throughout the year depending on illness/holiday cover) so probably fall into the next bracket up but I thought I’d just base it on the minimum figure I would get pre tax of course.

Currently between jobs, but my last one was about 22k, and the one I just had an interview for was about 20.5k.

Currently £35k, but I'm due a pay rise to £40k at the start of next year if I play my cards right :toot:

I tend to think a bit too much focus is put on wages when everyone's circumstances are so drastically different. It could be costing you thousands just to get to work every year, and another £15,000 could be gone just on renting.

I work part time (22.5 hours a week) and take home roughly 10.5k a year.
I'm not exactly rolling in it but I have humble needs and get by.

Maybe try something other than a Brucie impression at the staff appraisal meeting next time.
I suggest going as that woman who crosses her legs seductively in that film I also can't remember the name of :shifty: .

I’ve got a pretty good deal at the moment. I’m on 38k, but I have about an extra 10k from working overseas, shift work and stuff like that.

I don’t pay rent either but I live in a box room. I’m saving a lot and when I come home I’m planning on doing a big chunk of a house deposit.

Basic is about £32k and shift allowance and extras boost to £36k. Currently do nearly a week OT each month which will bump significantly.

With my annual bonus I’m on about £22k, working towards getting that up to at least £24k within the next year though.
