50k
And at what age would the typical servant reach this level 7 stage.
If I am correct, the bank will lend you about four times your income for a mortgage, so 50k as a bachelor isn't good unless you're renting. This seems irrelevant but you have to consider your options from all angles, unless of course you come from a wealthy home?
30-35 seems to be about the grade7 age. There are of course older grade 7's. Anyway, as pointed out this thread isn't anything to do with wage - the poster asked about entry points..... As you brought wages into the equation, how many other jobs (outside of City Trading) would pay £50K pa???

At 30-35yrs, loads.
Law, IT, Engineering, Marketing, medicine, dentistry, Plumber?
It all sounds nice, but so far I have worked so hard and at that time in life when one starts a family, 50k in the city becomes almost nothing.

I just want to clear something up about plumbing. master plumbers earn about 30k pa. there are less than 200 Master plumbers. The rest allearn somewhere between 15k and 20something k. They won't earn near 50k, even in London.

Also my boyf is a barrister - after chambers fees and transport to all corners of the country... 50K is stretching it!

I live in the city, most people I know are on around £30-£35k - be it law, marketing or medicine.
