How does your pay measure up? Recruitment consultancy Major Players has conducted a creative industry salary survey on design and creative jobs, both permanent and freelance

The survey, Major Players say, is based on 2,000 completed online responses. Participants were asked for their job title, what they were earning, whether their take home pay had risen in the last year, and also their opinions. Using the data collected and, Major Players say, their own expertise, the consultancy has put together the following guidelines on current UK pay levels:

 

UPDATE: We’ve had some clarification from Major Players. Apparently the survey was nationwide but a large proportion of responses were from the South East so the results would be skewed accordingly. However, according to the Design Council’s last survey, London and the South East accounts for 40% of all UK design businesses so some ‘bias’ is perhaps to be expected in any survey of this kind.
