I think you boys need to read very carefully before commenting
The overall range is what was presented, and such a wide range is because of the different factors a major one being the city you are working in.
Also, there are many who get 28k for a job in London and that includes the locals too!
Dont ever dream of living in London with any sort of salary, well if you get 70k plus then fine, because you can lead a good one. The rest travel from nearby towns of greater London which are great to live in and takes about 20mins to 40mins to get into the city. Traveling in Europe is nothing like the Asian countries. Most people travel close to an hour to work and cover huge distances and don't break a sweat. Traveling is not difficult out here.
So if you are a guy with 5 yrs plus exp and are unfortunate to get about 28k and that too in London, dont worry you wont do bad.
Even if u save only Â£500 in your first year but have a good job in the UK in this economic situation, consider yourself lucky. And let me repeat, 28k is definitely low but people with maybe 2 or 3 yrs exp cant expect more than 35k in any city in this climate.
