Job Search Tip:  When you search for a job on Glassdoor, our new job search interface tightly integrates proprietary user-generated content, making it easier to browse open jobs and research companies – all from a single window. Traditionally, a job description doesn’t offer you enough information to evaluate if a job is a good fit, but Glassdoor’s job descriptions now incorporate employee generated content, such as company reviews and salary information, to help you quickly evaluate if a company is a good fit for you.

* This survey was conducted online within the United Kingdom by Harris Poll on behalf of Glassdoor from December 21-23, 2015 among 1,043 adults ages 18 and older, among which 601 are employed full time/part time/self-employed or not employed but looking for a job. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated. For complete survey methodology, including weighting variables, please contact pr@glassdoor.com.

Methodology: For a job title to be considered for Glassdoor’s 25 UK Jobs Where You Can Earn More Than £50,000 report, job titles must receive at least 20 salary reports shared by UK-based employees over the past year (02/03/15 – 01/03/16). If job titles have the same median base salary, the job title with the higher number of job openings receives higher rank. This report takes into account job title normalisation that groups similar job titles. C-suite level jobs were excluded from this report.
