Your income defines many different aspects of your life from your home to your diet to your hobbies, and where you work can make all of the difference.

The companies who pay the most to their employees are often the most sought-after places to work.

The top payer gave staff an average wage of £90,000 - almost three times the average UK salary of £29,000.

John Lamphiere, Glassdoor’s European managing director, told the Mirror, “Salary is a key driver for many job seekers so we have made it easy for people to find out which employers are offering the most money.

“While salary and bonuses might get people in the door, it is more likely to be culture and career progression that help people stick around in the long term.

“It is no surprise that multinational tech and finance firms dominate the list, given that both industries compete fiercely for talent, especially when it comes to tech roles”
