    Trust me, I know the business If you're a conductor u can earn, idk, 40k per concert. It obviously varies from orchestra to orchestra e.g. the principal oboist in Berlin earns 8k per month

    Currently architect graduates earn around £20k-£23k straight after university, but I'm hoping to move into property development and urban master planning for the big dogs, so my salary could be anything from £70k upwards in 6-7 years time, all going well!

    You're talking about a tiny, tiny fraction of people at the top. You must have a lot of confidence in yourself! What do you play?

    I turned down an offer of $250k a year to work in the Kingdom for 2 years working for a large security vendor as a contractor... the money out there is just insane, but it would have come with a big price in freedom and liberty for me at least, hence why even such a lucrative offer was not appealing. Some of my former colleagues have done work out there and loved it, others hated it.
    That's crazy. Think about the end goal.

    What... being a slave to the vendor for 2 years living in a dry country where I have to pretend to be straight or I get sentenced to death by stoning?

    I value my liberty and freedom of expression more than money.

    In terms of immediate graduate salary then ideally 25-30k. I would obviously expect that to rise though.

    Don't forget to come back to this thread 40 years down the line and let us know how much you actually earned. Was your prediction correct?

    Immediately post-graduation: Band 5 (21k). 1 year down the line: Band 6 (25k). 3 years down the line: Band 7 (30k). 3 years down the line: Band 8a (40k). 3 years down the line: Band 8b (45k). 3 years down the line: Band 8c (55k). 3 years down the line: Band 8d (66k). 3 years down the line: Band 9 (77k). 5 years down the line: top of Band 9 (98k).

    That's my plan from becoming a pre-registration pharmacist (Band 5), to junior pharmacist (Band 6), to specialist pharmacist (Band 7), to advanced pharmacist (Band 8a), to lead pharmacist (Band 8b), to deputy chief pharmacist (Band 8c), to chief pharmacist (Bands 8d - 9). According to person specifications on the NHS jobs website, it says you need a minimum of 10 years of experience in hospital pharmacy in order to get the role of chief pharmacist, with 3-5 years in a senior managerial role. I've given myself more than enough of a time-scale, and also accounted for time needed to get extra qualifications, e.g. PG clinical diploma, supplementary / independent prescribing course, perhaps a Master's qualification?

    As you can see, I like to plan things in advance. Let's see how much of this happens!

    Exactly what Nursing position are you considering for that amount?
    Modern Matrons and Nursing Consultants' salaries are bands 8a - 8c, which is £39,239 - £67,805.

    Reading this post had made me feel like jobs don't really pay enough for the dream we aspire to have of owning a giant estate with a swimming pool.
    I guess this post has made me realize I need to either be amazing at my job or to set up a business and have a break through in the market. Somehow...

    That's only because house prices are high over here. Go to Australia and you can have your pool, haha.
