Average full time weekly pay within the Shropshire workplace

Average wages in 2020 for people working in Shropshire (workplace wages) increased by £7.00 to £532.90 gross per week in the year to April 2020, this is lower than the West Midlands average of £552.50. This is also lower than the average annual weekly wage for Great Britain which was up by £0.20 to £586.70; this means that the gap between national and local pay rates closed slightly.  This difference in workplace pay rates 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.
