Salary Guides...What do you earn?


Working out whether or not your salary level is in-line with industry standard can be tricky, especially when Geographical locations play such an important role. Having been on the receiving end of offers and speaking to hundreds of LA´s a year about their jobs, we´ve gained a good understanding of what people earn for their levels and we´re happy to share the info…

Your specific skills, ability and experience should always reflect in your remuneration, and hopefully the following guide can give both employers, their staff and job seekers the confidence that the salary levels offered are fair and appropriate. That said, there is no official ruling and the below information is based purely on our own experience.

As a whole however, we would consider the figures to be accurate, benchmarked against the market and updated regularly.
