Architectural Salary Guide - 2018

We're often asked for advice on the average architect salary and salaries in architecture. Without addressing the specific case, it's difficult to give meaningful or helpful guidance (it's a bit like asking the price of a house without knowing the details or if there's an interested buyer on the day) but as a very rough guide to London area norms, and bearing in mind the vagaries of the market, here is our guide below.

If you would like a more in-depth conversation about your salary level, please forward your CV to info@9Bcareers.com or give us a call on +44 (0)20 8004 0369.
