    In terms of base salary, working as a GP would be up there.

    In terms of your whole compensation and benefits/bonus, I would say working in Investment Banking.

    Depends on the role. Analysts at Barclays and UBS do get starting salaries at £40, excluding bonuses

    Then associates can get > £60k at bulge bracket banks

    Skilled business analysts, project managers and software devs can earn an awful lot, as contractors. I mean CEOs and similar executive roles probably command the highest earnings, but they're not easy to come by, require a lot of work and entail an awful lot of responsibility and usually years of experience, as well as strong social skills, so it depends on what you mean by job and at what phase of one's career.

    As long as you're willing to put in the extreme hours. I think hours worked and overall costs of maintaining a job can erode the real earning power it provides.

    That's more of a species of entrepreneur. Granted, it is a job, but a very different sort to the usual salaried one, particularly in terms of personal risk-bearing. Those sort of businesses will do well as long as central banks are suppressing interest rates and keeping money flowing in that direction by extension.

    erm no - we are definitely not even close to the "highest paid". There are leagues and leagues above us. What about top footballers? They get £100ks per week.

    OP - your initial question is an oxymoron. The highest paid jon on average? It's either the highest or it's the average.

    thats true bro. But some consultants do get paid a lot doing both. Know from someone I know.

    The question could be better phrased but I suspect what he means is fields with the highest paid average employees. CEOs, for instance, can command very high salaries but they are extremities/outliers.

    Thank you for the explanation of the question - it makes more sense now. In that case I do agree that senior doctors on average do earn >£100k per year, more with private. However any more than £200k would start to make you stand out.

    There are much higher paid (again on average) careers out there - senior hospital managers can earn more than senior hospital consultants. Similarly as I have suggested, footballers and other talented sportstars probably earn the most at >£10 of millions per year (if you are the best of the best).
