If you land the right job after you graduate from your college, you might as well earn more than twice the money that an average graduate might earn. The United Kingdom offers a variety of jobs that a freshly graduated student could pick up but only some of these jobs come with a fat paycheck, bonuses, and perks.
Some studies have shown that the banking sector could offer better salaries in the United Kingdom if you are an entry-level person and the same is applicable for the Technology Sector. In the year 2019, the job of an investment banking analyst was termed as the highest paying job of the year, with an average base salary of 50,752 pounds for entry-level positions. This amount is quite a catch for an entry-level job considering the large pay gap between this and the second-highest paying job that is of a software engineer which is just 34,106 pounds. In the third position was the job of an entry-level business analyst, with a median salary of 32,142 pounds.
The above statistics show that the top-paying jobs in the UK are dominated by data scientists and financial analysts. This due to the high demand for such experts in the country. Investment banks are usually more generous with their entry-level salaries to attract fresh talent which then is sorted out through a grueling interview process.
However, while the investment banking sector provides the highest mean base salary, four of the ten highest-paying jobs in the UK are in the technology sector. This shows that most industries and companies are willing to pay handsomely to find talent in the field of technology.
Another highly paid field of expertise in the UK is that of an aircraft controller. Aircraft controllers carry a high responsibility on their shoulders as their work is important for the safety of all the flyers. In order to qualify for this job, the individual must have outstanding leadership skills and mental preparedness and readiness in case of a disaster. This huge responsibility is also detrimental to their salary. An aircraft controller in the UK earns an average of 1,960 pounds per week, which amounts to more than 96,000 pounds a year. Even commercial aircraft pilots and flight engineers are paid handsomely as they have a huge demand as most of the people in the world prefer traveling by air. Besides that, the UK has one of the most advanced aeronautical systems and an extensive network of airlines. Similarly, the UK aeronautical industry is highly developed and requires skilled engineers to ensure the smooth working of existing aircraft and to help companies come up with better ideas to further the advancement of the aircraft industry.
Though these are some high paying jobs, it is only wise if you find the right job for the skill set you have. There are other similar jobs with almost the same salaries you can find out. However, it is always about your performance in the interview and how you are able to showcase your skin said to the human resources team.
