Average full time weekly pay within the Shropshire workplace

Average wages in 2018 for people working in Shropshire (workplace wages) increased by £31.70 to £504.80 gross per week in the year to April 2018, this is lower than the West Midlands average of £536.60 This is also lower than the average annual weekly wage for Great Britain which was up by £18.60 to £570.90; this means that the gap between national and local pay rates closed slightly from £81.50 to £66.10.  This difference may be due to a higher percentage of our businesses being within sectors that tend to be lower paid; agriculture, care, hospitality and leisure.

Please note that sample sizes of the survey are likely to cause a greater annual fluctuation in rates for Shropshire than for the West Midlands.
