Highest UK Salaries 2008

The list below illustrates the high earners based on our 2008 salary survey.

Note that this takes the highest figure from each of the individual job titles and therefore the average salary for some of these job titles listed on the site may be lower than some other job titles which have not made the list this time around... things were close at the top so there are some job titles that only missed out by a few pounds!

Note that certain data has been discarded where it was considered erroneous and biasing the data, and that this list is compiled of 'ordinary jobs' therefore job titles such as 'golf professional' which were higher than these have been discarded. This list is based on the data of approximately 13,000 respondents to our salary survey in February 2008.

The top ten salaries by job title are as follows:
