    At what stage of your career doing what? For a starting salary that's very good, if it's well in to a highly paid profession like IB or software development, or for a senior role then not so much.

    £26500 is the national average for everyone. If you think of London wages plus how many are in excess, then that means plenty of people are well below that becayse its an average.

    Relative to what? If you live cheaply, have cheap housing and food then you'll be well off.

    In relation to wages you receive from a job...dunno what other details you require, everyone else managed to get the drift.

    Yes, it's an excellent wage if you're near the beginning of your career. It's close to the median salary and your wage is going to rise as you gain experience, depending on your field.

    Salary certainly isn't everything, of course. Does it provide good skills development/opportunities/experience that's relevant for what you want to do or be in the long-term?

    Nope I managed that (and replied) just thought there might have been more like as a starting salary, graduate salary or a particular region or profession.
