    In these current times, i would be happy with a boring office job which pays £15,000 a year after i graduate as it would pay my bills and mortgage. By the age of 30 i would want to be on a salary of £25,000 a year though (mortgage would be cleared and id be saving about 10k a year).

    So what salary would make you happy?

    Salary is irrelevant. I would work for free for my perfect job.

    No salary can make me "happy". I wouldn't complain if I was on £80,000 + though...

    I'm 25, earning £20k, would like to be on £25k by October which I'd be very happy with considering my highest qualification is an A in GCSE maths.

    Same, but I would want the opportunity to have a year off when I'm 28/29 so I can travel

    One that covers my living costs, buy my house without a mortgage, frequent holidays abroad, allows me to buy a new car every 10 years or so and allows me to put a lot of money aside for my retirement at 50-55 year old.

    Depends what job I have. If I really love the job I'd be happier with a lower salary than if I was in a job I hated :teehee:

    Min wage. Money don't matter when you have a fun job with good people....until you need money to pay your medical bills, kids school and special cancer treatment for your mother.

    I would be happy with £50k and 6 months off per year. That way it would average out about £25k per year but have lots of free time to do stuff.

    Damn straight! Got loads of awesome things coming up! A couple of really good gigs, a comedy night, the return of the F1 season, hopefully a trip to the Belgian GP this year, trips to the countryside, the perigee of the moon, band practice and the fair at the park. Add this lovely weather and I really couldn't ask for more!

    Money is all good, but I really don't need much to be happy.

    I'd be happy to be getting ~£25k a year but I'd also want to enjoy my job at least a little. If I really enjoyed my job I'd settle for less and I'd probably be happier to work a little more. ;D
