    How to find average salary for role and location

    I'm looking to find an average salary for a permie role. I thought at least one of the job boards aggregated this info from the ads and published it. Can anyone help me find it?

      Take that with a pinch of salt though. Adabas Natural av. salary of £10,000,000

      In general… IT jobs will be between £35K and £150k depending on role and experience.
      Purely technical skills, with at least 2 years, and you’re in £45k to £70k range, depending on experience and rarity of skill set. To get more than that you need to bring more than just an engineer/dev skill set.

        Jobstats looks like it has been updated in 10 years.

          But also take that with a pinch of salt. It's created by scraping the boards so will also contain all the false adverts and ones with inflated rates to garner interest.

            usually you should look at the mid point from ranges advertised and add 20% on that. that's what most employers would be looking to pay.
            the top of the range is not usually relevant.

            I would start the calculation from the other side. What are your expenses, what are your savings plans. Would you consider taking a role to further your career?
            What opportunities would the new knowledge open.

            If you can't get an answer that you are satisfied with, consider doing other things. Not working, selling house or relocating to another country.

            A lot of times it is not about what they can offer but how would that work with you. Look at it with an open mind. You do not want to work because you have to pay bills. Or work only for money. That is the worst kind of motivation.

              As other have said, which role, at what level, in which location, in which industry?

              City Hedge fund, algorithmic trading developer / Quant, with 15 years realtime experience of making a company billions, or school leaver on apprenticeship, working in the public sector at a library in Scunthorpe?

              Both permie IT roles.

                  Thanks everyone. IT jobwatch was handy, Reed had a average salary calculator as well. The best seemed to be jobserve, just do a search and see how many jobs are in each bracket of salary.

                    There are also several IT salary and contractor rate surveys published each year by the likes of Hays and Robert Half. Some have data by region/size of company.

                    Usually you need to have some relationship with the agency e.g. have hired staff to be able to get a free copy.
