Recent (Or Imminent) Levels Of Pay

Recommended Posts

My partner has recently found out that her pay will increase (not due to promotion or anything) by 3% this month. It's the first time, if memory serves) that her pay has changed in a couple of years. I was wondering what the experience of others is -- either for themselves or someone they know.

I'm sort of interested either in pay changes (in nominal or cash terms) during, say, the last six or twelve months, or those known to be imminently incoming, in the next few months.

It's hard to give a strong counter example to this and not look like a bragging a-hole, but I'm at a ~ 75% increase in salary over the last 2 years.

Started with a promotion within my permie role, then a move to contracting, then a jump to another contract with higher rate.

In 2 years, that's 4 different roles, 3 different cities, a number of different skillsets.

I appreciate OP was talking about pay rises within a role, but the traditional rise for doing the same job are probably a thing of the past. If you're flexible, mobile, and position yourself well for jumping on short term and current trends however, you'll be able to give yourself a payrise without depending on an employer to throw you a few crumbs.

Surely, as long as there's long-term inflation, there must also be long-term pay rises to go along with it?
