    Outside of London that would be a fantastic start. In London however, you will have to be safer with your spending. Though put it this way. You're in a job that probably will allow you to progress and climb the ladder. Most of the country is stuck working the crap shift at some dead end minimum wage job. Consider yourself one of the lucky ones who has actually made it.

    Love it when people react to stats by talking about their individual experiences. Statistics is about trends not about particular individuals. I don't need to know what you do, how long, etc? The only fact I need is whether or not you are a graduate. And told me you are not. That's all I need to conclude that you are less likely to hit 23K than graduates. Plus your average earnings over your lifetime will peak earlier than those of graduates.

    Statistics 101: some folks (whose statistical literacy I doubt) are likely to conflate a statistical rule with a set theoretical statement where Me is a member of of the class of individuals for whom, by some irrational (hence invalid) argument, conclusions based on inferential statistics are inapplicable.

    It's very good. Don't listen to that nonsense about 25-30k starting salaries for grads, that only applies to those small percentage of top tier blue chip schemes which most people aren't on.

    24k is very good. Take it.

    However, this depends what industry you're talking about of course. What industry is it? Investment banking, law and such bump up the average massively.

    24k would normally be a decent starting salary for average hours and little to no higher education but in London the cost of living is ridiculously high.
    I was still getting paid 15k a year after I completed my apprenticeship. There was no indication of a raise anytime soon which is why I went to uni.

    24k is a great starting wage especially if you live in the midlands or up north. I wouldn't live down South on 24k though unless I was confident it would increase substantially in a short amount of time.

    Hi, I've been offered a graduate job in London with 24k starting salary - is that great, ok or bad?

    Thanks
    In these times, any salary above minimum wage for a graduate role with 0 work experience is a good salary.

    I earnt significantly less than 24k whilst living in the South and still found myself having a very high disposable income. It all depends on your expenses.

    It's good enough to expect those earning it to know not to hijack threads
