Why is January such a busy time for job hunting? A neurotic cocktail of New Year Resolutions, January Blues, and good ole Christmas debt is often to blame.

If you are headed to pastures new, the Barbican is where the highest paid jobs in London are to be found.

According to Adzuna, a job search engine, the average salary at the Barbican is £52k, followed by Monument, Bank, and Cannon Street in London’s traditional business district, which average at £51k.

Surprisingly, Victoria Line commuters could be out of pocket, with advertised salaries at stops along this line averaging £29k.

Doug Monro, co-founder of Adzuna, said: “Londoners love to argue about whose tube line is the best, and in terms of pay the Waterloo & City Line takes top place in the commuting charts, with the Circle and Central Lines following close behind.

“Meanwhile, Victoria Line commuters may boast of frequent tubes and a speedy service, but this research conclusively shows jobs located along the Victoria Line route offer the lowest pay, proving the Victoria Line is not where the money is.”

The study, conducted in December 2017, analysed average advertised salaries to jobs at companies within ¼ mile from tube stops around the capital.

The Elizabeth Line, due to launch December 2018, could be a game-changer when it connects high-paid hotspot Canary Wharf to other areas of London.

The route will link Woolwich in the south, Reading in the west and Brentwood in the east to Canary Wharf, opening up the financial district to thousands of city commuters.
