UK Highest Paying Jobs

What would change in your life if you gain a high paying job? What would be the outcome of having a large income? Many people answer these questions with; security, a big house, a positive career, respect, a nice car, going on several holidays a year or to get away from poverty, to stop living in a bad neighbourhood, to get away from having no money or no future.

Whatever your desired outcome is, you can achieve it by following these two steps:

Achieving Your Outcome

Number One: write an action plan with all the steps needed to reach your career goal and outcomes, a career coach can help you complete your action plan. An action plan works as you are making a commitment on paper, research has shown that you are more likely to achieve goals which you have written down.

Number Two: think about the first two questions about your outcomes, the reason you want a high paid job; collect pictures of all the things you want; car, house, security, etc and put them on a board (in coaching we call this an image board) and place the board somewhere visible and some place you are likely to look each day. By seeing the images – your desired outcomes on a daily basis, will keep you motivated and focused.

High Paying UK Jobs


Below is a list of UK high paying jobs, under salary brackets. In any position you love and enjoy you will find you will automatically move up the career ladder, as people always put extra effort in to something they like and in most careers you can move up to a comfortable salary.

Having money is always a bonus and I would add your career goal should be based on your values and beliefs rather then just money. If you had the choice between a well paid job you did not enjoy or an average paid job you loved, which one would you choose?  

Career Coaching


If you have a dream of being successful and are currently unsure which career or job sector you should invest time in, you would benefit from a few career coaching sessions. In brief a career coach can support you into your career by matching your skills, qualities, personality, values and beliefs against a job specification. In short you can gain a job you will love and gain promotions in, gaining all the financial benefits to come with each new step up the career ladder.
