Despite Brexit and the 2020 Skills Gap looming (read more about this in our 2019 L&D report) UK salaries seem to be rising. What's more, the occupations that are historically some of the lowest paid (such as caring, leisure and service occupations) are growing at a faster rate than some of the highest paid occupations (such as managerial and senior official roles)

Weekly earnings were up too, with the average weekly take-home pay in the UK for 2019 being £569 per week (up from £550 in the previous year).

Even with inflation factored in, wages rose 1.2% above this.
