Pay in London
At Harrow we have recently monitored conservation related job advertisements and surveyed colleagues in other London boroughs in a bid to ascertain current employment and payment trends in the Capital. This article, whilst not particularly scientific, contains the results of that study.
Pay varies considerably, partly as many Boroughs offer this as a career grade post. Salaries start as low as £16,000 (a relevant degree but no experience in Bromley). However, they rise to between £28,000 - £32,000.
Job adverts suggest that this tends to start at £27,000 in London, the salaries rising to around £36,000. That said, two recent advertisements, one for a post in Camden and another for a post Southwark, start at £34,000 and £32,000 respectively. Private sector posts are generally open to senior staff (5 years experience plus) and would pay upwards of £40,000.
