These are the top 25 best-paying companies in the UK

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.”
