Wales sees highest salary growth

Filed under: Business Continuity — Jonathan on August 18, 2012

Workers wanting an increase in salary, as well as an increase in their wage packet, could get what they want by relocating to Wales, says a recent study. So those based in other areas in the UK seeking CISSP jobs and business continuity vacancies stand a better chance of more pay with a willingness to relocate.

Allthetopbananas.com, the employment search engine, carried out the research using data from a selection of more than 9,400,000 job adverts in their database. The average salary growth advertised is 16 per cent more than in 2008.

A recent quarterly report on inflation suggests that there won’t be any growth in the economy this year. The results show that workers in Wales and Scotland could achieve higher salaries, as well as having a higher chance of promotion.

Other regions were less fortunate, however. Large cities, London included, saw a significant drop in average salaries advertised. With a number of high-flying industries based in the capital, it was unexpected for it to see a fall of seven per cent in average advertised salaries, meaning that it has fallen to £39,502.

London wasn’t the sole area in the UK to see a decrease in advertised salary increase, however, as other regions have also faltered. East Anglia decreased by 12 per cent, the North West by eight per cent and the West Midlands by nine per cent.

The results also showed that people thinking about relocating for work should stay away from areas in Yorkshire, as salaries revealed a decrease of average advertised salary by 17 per cent when compared to 2008 results.
