A report released today has revealed that the UK's 25 highest paying company's offer staff between £61,000 and £90,000 as a median compensation package.
The list by job site Glassdoor is dominated by finance and tech firms, three of which have their headquarters in the UK.
John Lamphiere, EMEA managing director at Glassdoor, said: “It is no surprise that multinational tech and finance firms dominate the list, given that both industries compete fiercely for talent, especially when it comes to tech roles.
"While salary and bonuses might get people in the door, it is more likely to be culture and career progression that help people stick around in the long term.”
Here are the UK's 25 best-paying companies:
|Company||Median total comp (£)||Median base salary (£)|
|McKinsey & Co||70,000||65,000|
|Bank of America||70,000||64,500|
The list comes after UK wages rose yet again in March, according to the Office for National Statistics, climbing 3.2 per cent year on year.
That left the average UK weekly salary at £498 per week, or £465 compared to 2015 currency. That iss till £8 lower than the £473 recorded before the financial crisis.
