5 Best-Paid Jobs in the UK

Do you remember that time when you were a child, and somebody asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up? You probably told them something like “a singer!” or “a postman!”, and they probably said something like “how about a doctor? They earn lots of money!”.

Yeah, I remember conversations like that. Turns out though, that becoming a medical practitioner is not the most well-paid profession available. In fact, according to the interactive report created by the Office for National Statistics, a medical practitioner is only the 4th most well-paid profession!

The real money, it seems, is either flying aircraft, controlling traffic, or becoming a top senior business executive. Then it’s the doctors.

Anyway, here’s the list of average salaries sorted by job role:

  1. Aircraft Pilot: £90,420
  2. Chief Executive: £81,521
  3. Air Traffic Controller: £79,874
  4. Medical Practitioner: £71,141
  5. Marketing or Sales Director: £70,742
