Because im a nosey ****er and all that

But as a matter of interest, what was everyones first real salary (as in your first proper job, not just school/uni gigs)


I was somehow lucky and scored an $80k+ one right out of uni (albeit with a year of searching :rolleyes: ) Alas, the tax man cometh at that point.

£19k working for the NHS as a medical lab assistant... trying to get a health care professional council (HCPC) certificate to become a fully qualified Biomedical Scientist - had the degree, needed the certificate (the lab I got my initial job in didn’t offer it but experience is experience). 🙂

£17,500 working in IT support. Funnily enough I seemed to have far more spare cash back then too.

Ah i miss the days of having spare cash to blow on random stuff, now it all seems to be being funnelled into the IRD's slush funds :rolleyes:

From September my Grad scheme in London will be paying me £27000 with salary reviews every 6 months. After the 2 years and a promotion it should be double that. Hoping to save quite a bit due to hybrid working being allowed aswell.
