Ten jobs that could earn you in excess of £100kFeature of the week
The BBC reported in 2012 that the world’s average yearly income per person equates to £6,273 ($10,000), a small sum compared to some executive jobs out there that can bring in an income of £100k a year or more. But just what are these jobs and what do they involve?
Chief information officer
The title sounds like a glorified name for a smaller job but the CIO (chief information officer) in a large corporation has to deal with managing a team of expert IT professionals and take on “responsibility for technology operations, development environments, and all physical infrastructure”.
Due to a severe lack in skilled workers many plumbers out there are taking advantage with some earning between £95k to £100k a year, as a This Is Money article details. With these figures made public why isn’t there a sudden influx of people signing up for plumber apprenticeships?
In 2014 the office for National Statistics revealed that house prices increased by 6.8% in January of that year. This was due to an influx in housing developments and therefore a plea for skilled bricklayers, who have gone on to earn day rates – in London – of £150 to £200, with the average weekly total salary now amounting to £479.
Sick of hearing about those PPIs? Well, you wouldn’t be if you worked as a Business Analyst, PPI Calculator, earning £500 a day.
Private practice GP
Working as a consultant partner in a private GP practice could see you earn an average of £103,000 a year. You might have to work a few weekends though to earn extra cash, but apparently those GPs who do will take home £3,000 in overtime pay. Think about that next time you’re stuck in the office on a Saturday, desperately finishing off a report that’s due on Monday morning.
In your second year of working as a barrister you could enjoy earnings of up to £200,000. Barristers are self-employed so this does all depend on how much work they received and the cases themselves but it’s a job title that comes with a big pay packet.
Ofsted chief inspector
To put improvement plans in place for failing schools and to terrify teachers you could get paid up to £199,999. You won’t be popular, but your bank balance will look great.
Chief operating operator Ofsted
Following in the inspector’s footsteps the chief operating operator of Ofsted takes home £165,000. Most executive jobs within the sector enjoy a high salary with the Regional Directors for schools taking home around £130,000.
League one footballer
Footballers playing in the lower leagues can earn from £1,300 to £2,500 a week, which could tot up to a respectable £130,000 a year. That’s peanuts compared to the elite players who earn up to £10 million a season.
