Leeds is the best paid city outside London – does your town make the list?
A study of postcode areas with the highest advertised salaries says Leeds is the top-paying region outside London.
Other cities with attractive salaries include Cambridge, Bristol and Manchester, according to jobs site Adzuna.
Companies including Asda, First Direct, Yorkshire Bank, Centrica, Evri and Direct Line are based in the Yorkshire city, while broadcaster Channel 4 has set up its UK HQ in Leeds.
It beats ‘Silicon Fen’ city Cambridge, where advertised salaries average £37,692, as well as engineering, tech and finance hub Bristol (£37,281) and Manchester (£36,690).
East central London, home to the Square Mile, is the highest-paid UK postcode area, with advertised salaries topping an average of £56,497.
The lowest-paid postcode area is in the Outer Hebrides, seeing average advertised salaries of £17,428, followed by Telford (£24,723) and Lerwick in Shetland (£26,624), said the report.
Two South West locations Torquay and Dorchester are also among the 10 lowest-paid postcodes.
Andrew Hunter, co-founder of Adzuna, said: ‘Jobseeking doesn’t need to be a postcode lottery.
