What are Britain's Best Paid Jobs?
  • A high-paid job pay is one where the pay is more than 1.5 times median hourly earnings.
  • High-pay employees in the UK in 2022 are earning anything above £22.16 an hour!
  • CEOs, directors, pilots, GPs, head teachers and financial managers all appear in a league table of the best-paid jobs.
  • Keep in mind that this data in this video short is for median hourly wages and some people of course earn mega bucks – driving up the mean!
