    If you don't want to be in a house share, you're gonna need a lot more than that.

    My best mate works for a bank and earns 80k a year, he still can't afford to rent a decent one bed flat in London.

    Meanwhile, out here in the sticks, £30k a year and you can live in a plush 3 bed house.
    That's ridiculous man.

    Cheers for rubbishing my chosen career when you clearly don't know what you are talking about..

    What most people do between a PhD and academia. The research bit without the lecturing.

    Try not to sound like such a knob and people !might respond a bit more niceley

    A better way to approach that if you wanted a civil response would be 'really? I thought academics earnt much less than that!'

    What about your husband?
    So how much would cut it?
    My husbands money isnt my money. I may not ever marry

    A minimum of £800 after bills etc should do it.

    I'm not sure how you plan on working for a salary that could possibly pay for all of that and give you the time off for two holidays a year. Let's get real here, the jobs that pay you what you sound like you want to afford are not going to give you the free time that you desire.
    Good thing I've already got it ayyy!

    And that job is..? :lol:
    The first one I was offered was in civil service. Salary is around £30,000.

    The second was a gas/electricity company. It pays a little less, but I can probs squeeze one holiday in per year

    You're still at uni, you could always consider a change of career if you think you're selling out! Neither are still recruiting but I'll let you know if I hear anything xx

    Depends what I get into:

    M&A Analysts make £50k+ as base and another £25-40k as bonus

    Associate Consultant/Business Analysts at MBB is £40-45k plus a smaller bonus of circa ~£5k

    Associate Product Managers at Google, FB. etc. earn about £60k plus £10-20k bonus

    These are all graduate salaries by the way. Competition for these jobs is ridiculously high but there's no shame in trying.

    If we're talking pipe dreams expectations then:

    A Partner at a Venture Capital firm averages £600k plus £1.5mil+ carried interest
    A high level exec at a tech firm gets £1-2mil
