So you want to work in digital media, which is a great start. You’d probably like to know how much you’re going to earn now.
Digital media is a job-rich market, and there’s a shortage of skilled candidates – that’s good news for you. It means that demand is high and progression can be fast. We’ve put the chart below together to give you an idea as to how it fares against other sectors:
On this chart, the UK average salary (irrespective of level) is shown as the white picket fence. Just above that is the London average (the hedge). The bee and the dotted line show the career progression for a graduate in London and the tops of the flowers show where digital media fits in the salary scale.
As you can see in the chart, digital starts off a touch under the average London graduate wage, but quickly matches and surpasses it, hitting national average before year three and surpassing the London average before year four.
We’ve tried to make this as accurate as possible, although different sectors in digital will vary slightly – this reflects what we consider to be typical.
It’s just one of the many reasons we think that digital media is such a great market for graduates to enter.
