Remember, lads. If you want a decent pay rise you'll most likely have to change jobs.

I think this has always been the case. I recently got a 10% but as the data shows, that is quite rare. In most places I have worked, it's quicker to change job than sit out and try and get a promotion or increase in role/responsibilities.

Depends also, obviously, on what line of work you are in.

I've just worked out that in the past 9 years I've had an annualised compound pay rise of just over 12%. It's from a low base of £15,000 but I've changed employers twice and had two internal promotions during that time frame.

Alternatively bed yourself in at a small highly-dysfunctional software company and you can really scare them into tidy pay rises by innocently dropping hints that you are unhappy or tidying your CV at the weekend.

Feels pretty bad that the NHS is the only sizable employer in my profession, and the private sector actually underpays by comparison because they don't adhere to as stringent accreditation, and therefore require a lower level of qualification. My pay has been essentially the same for nearly a decade, and the pay deal from the other year only brings it in line with inflation.

This strategy worked for me. Did it twice in the past 18 months, and clearly things weren't working. Got 20% going into the first, 10% out of there and into the second, and 25% out of there and into somewhere decent. Throw in the raise I received in the job I had before that, and in two years my pay has gone up 65%.

As someone who worked in the NHS in a very much not frontline area, pay is a perennial problem. Management would wonder why the we were always suffering the same old problems that were getting us constantly slated. The thought that pay points were pathetic compared to the market and therefore the only people suitably qualified that were applying were internal candidates. Anyone that was actually competent was leaving.

Yeah, in our line of work you can easily change jobs every few years without it hurting your CV at all - improving it even. The problem comes as you get older, have families, and don't feel like jumping on the recruitment merry-go-round every two years.

Thanks. Between 2010 and 2015 my pay only went up from £15,000 to £20,000 but since then it has more than doubled. It's amazing what difference a bit of experience and self belief can do.
