    I think in the current climate most people will need to redefine the term "crappy offer".

      Yep, myself included. This perm offer would set me back to my 2015/16 wages, and with no possibility of a bonus for many years.

        Id be very interested in knowing what the actual number was. Are we talking 60/70/80

        I spent 15 years in financial services and it was always the best payer overall and the work not too hard

          Why are you trolling multiple threads, obsessed with how much people earn?

            Because with data people can make concrete decisions - Their is no point saying its a crappy market without quantifying it

            Saying I used to work on 100K and now I am being offered 60K makes the gap far easier to understand

            As does I used to earn 60K and I am now taking 58K easier to understand as well

            What is the problem with understanding anonymously first hand what people are experiencing

              Your sample size is too small to make any reasonable conclusion. I believe that you know this. This is why it is my conclusion that you are a trolling arse. Now off you ****.

                  I'm going to take a wild guess and suggest that it might be a troll.

                    I said 20% lower. In the current environment, I dont think you need a survey to figure out that salaries will roughly be 20-30% lower imo.

                      Post Brexit the City is in a Covid accelerated decline which will probably drag everyone else down with it. A vaccine might sort out the Covid part but the Brexit part is probably baked in now.
