    So if I start my career on £21k, will my employer do a review at the end of the year and increase my salary based on performance, which could be anything from 1-10%?

    At some companies, their is a percentage increment. My sister is a marketing assistant and she only gets a pay rise of 3% per year.

    So what is your percentage increment/ bonus per year? With experience and new skills will an employer increase your pay significantly?

    I'm going into software development, I've heard of accountants getting pay rises of around £3k per year.


    I've never had an automatic annual pay rise of anything more than 1%. Companies do not reward loyalty and see no reason to automatically increase salaries.. that's a thing of the past!

    1&!, what other factors come into play, can employers increase your pay in you've developed new skills, work harder, had no conduct warnings, been a good employee within the company?

    My friends going in construction management and he says the average starting salary is £24k and after 3 years he is expected to be on £30k (increase of 2k every year).
