Televisual’s 20th annual salary survey is now available to read in full in the Reports and Surveys section of our website.

Based on feedback from hundreds of Televisual readers, the salary survey reveals the weekly and daily rates for key jobs in the industry, as well as information about pay by sector, region, age and gender.

The survey paints a mixed picture of pay rates in broadcasting and production. 

On the plus side, the median salary according to the survey is £45k a year  compared to an average UK salary of £26.5k.

A producer can expect to earn £46.5k while an offline editor is likely to take home £47.5k. The median salary of a director is £58k; for a series producer and exec producer it is £70k and £90k respectively.

43.5% of respondents say their their earnings are up – compared to 14.2% who say they have fallen, and 42.3% who report they have stayed the same.

However, as in previous years, the feedback to the salary survey is dominated by concerns that tightening broadcaster programme budgets are continuing to bear down on salaries and working conditions.

Many individuals say they are working harder and for longer hours – but for little extra money.
