British pound banknotes

They say the best things in life are free, but having a comfortable salary certainly doesn’t hurt either. It’s hard to beat being engaged in your job, liking the company you’re working for and taking home a generous pay cheque — after all, having a few extra quid in your bank account can make the difference between being able to dine at a nice restaurant, go on vacation or even buy a home.

Looking for companies that will reward you handsomely for your efforts? Glassdoor have looked through our vast repository of data in order to identify which organisations offer the highest pay. Read on below, and make sure to apply for one of their many open positions!

Methodology: Glassdoor’s 25 Highest Paying Companies in the UK report identifies companies with the highest median total compensation package (including base salary and other forms of compensation, such as commissions, tips, bonuses, etc.), as reported by UK-based employees on Glassdoor over the past year (01/03/2018 – 28/02/2019). Companies considered for this report must have received at least 30 salary reports in GBP by UK-based employees during the timeframe. While ‘other forms of compensation’ is an optional field on Glassdoor, salary reports considered for this report must have been from employees who shared both their base pay and other forms of compensation. In cases where companies have the same median total compensation, the company with the higher median base compensation receives the higher rank. Subsidiaries of companies were considered for this report if they met the methodology, have their own distinct job listings and profile on Glassdoor.
