A study of postcode areas with the highest advertised salaries has suggested Leeds is the top-paying region outside London.
Other cities with attractive salaries include Cambridge, Bristol and Manchester, according to jobs site Adzuna.
Its analysis of more than one million jobs found average advertised pay in Leeds is around £37,800, with 36,000 vacancies in the city in October.
It beats ‘Silicon Fen’ city Cambridge, where advertised salaries average £37,692, as well as engineering, tech and finance hub Bristol (£37,281) and Manchester (£36,690).

East central London, home to the Square Mile, is the highest-paid UK postcode area, with advertised salaries topping an average of £56,497.
The lowest-paid postcode area is in the Outer Hebrides, seeing average advertised salaries of £17,428, followed by Telford (£24,723) and Lerwick in Shetland (£26,624), said the report.
Two South West cities Torquay and Dorchester are also among the 10 lowest-paid postcodes.
Andrew Hunter, co-founder of Adzuna, said: ‘Jobseeking doesn’t need to be a postcode lottery.
‘Those looking for lucrative work could start by searching in postcode areas with higher average pay cheques and our data shows areas like Leeds and Manchester are great options.
‘It can pay to look a little further afield when considering a new role, even if you don’t want to move location.
‘For remote workers, focusing the job search on areas at the top of the salary charts could help you bag a pay rise, while considering a commute could mean a salary lift for those working in the office.’
