Average Cost of Living


It's all a sly way of getting you for as little as possible, which inevitably wastes everyones time as you have the initial interview and ask about the salary to find it's a paltry sum.

It's also a way of widening the net to attract as many applications as possible.

We have position open currently which could be anything form £30-60k depending on the qualities and experience of the person who gets the job. We tend to look for people we like and fit the job to suit them rather than looking for someone with very specific requirements. If we said the job was £45k then that would put some people off for being too low and others too high so we'd miss out on some interesting candidates.


I can't possibly imagine how hard it is to work for minimum wage down south considering the price of rent and other things, people struggle up here with it so it must be damn near impossible down there even with help.

Universal credit usually. That's who the benefit cap hit badly. £20k cap won't hit many up here with sub £500 rents.
