This report highlights the 25 best jobs based on each job’s overall Glassdoor Job Score*. The Glassdoor Job Score is determined using three key factors – earning potential based on median annual base salary, career opportunities rating and number of job openings. The jobs that made this list stand out across all three categories.

*MethodologyGlassdoor’s 25 Best Jobs in the UK report identifies specific jobs with the highest overall Glassdoor Job Score. The Glassdoor Job Score is determined by weighting three factors equally: earning potential (median annual base salary), career opportunities rating, and number of job openings. Results represent job titles that rate highly among all three categories. The Glassdoor Job Score is based on a 5-point scale (5.0=best job, 1.0=bad job). For a job title to be considered, it must receive at least 30 salary reports and at least 30 career opportunities ratings shared by UK-based employees over the past year (8/1/15-7/1/16). The number of job openings per job title represents active listings on Glassdoor as of 8/1/16. This report takes into account job title normalisation that groups similar job titles and a minimum of 100 job openings must be live per job title.
