These figures from the Office of National Statistics could make you change your career.

A new survey has calculated the average pay for jobs around the UK, and some of it is enlightening.

As Esquire reports, the Office of National Statistics have posted their annual calculation of average job salaries, which saw them survey 21,563,000 people in total.

Unsurprisingly, in a list of over 400 jobs, brokers came out on top, racking up a whopping £133,677 a year, shortly followed by chief execs and senior officials at £107,703.

Nice.

The good news is that the average salary was found to be £27,271, so most of us are in the same boat.

The bad news is you're going to have to scroll quite far down on the list to find it... right around the plumbers and podiatrists.
