Latest figures released this week show wages have risen at their fastest pace in nearly 10 years.

Company Profile


According to ONS data, pay rose by 3.1% in the three months to August, compared to a year ago, excluding bonuses.

Allthetopbananas.com has broken the figures down by region, to give an accurate picture of what is happening with advertised average wages across the UK.

Head of Marketing at ATTB David Ogden said: “Due to the thousands of jobs we process from across the web every month, we have an extremely accurate view of what is happening in UK recruitment, not only in job sector trends but also what companies are offering when it comes to wages”.

A highlight in September sees Wales performing very strongly compared to all other regions.  

With around 200,000 jobs on the site in Wales, giving an average advertised salary of more than £38K, it is only just behind London on £40K (172,000 jobs).
